PERU, Ind. (AP) - Police say a northern Indiana man tied a 17-year-old boy to a chair and beat him after claiming to have caught the boy burglarizing his home.

The Miami County Sheriff’s Department says the 33-year-old man told deputies chased down the teen in a neighborhood near Grissom Air Reserve Base outside Peru.

The Kokomo Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1hy0qnW) police say he punched and kicked the teen, whipped him with a belt and shocked him twice with a stun gun.

The man told police he felt justified beating the teenager before calling police. Police say the teen admitted to stealing from the man before but that he was invited into the house on Friday.

The man was arrested on preliminary charges of criminal confinement and battery.
