BROWNSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Pennsylvania man kept a 15-year-old girl in shackles as collateral for a loan to her father.

Thirty-year-old Christopher Wiley Brown, of Brownsville, was jailed Thursday on kidnapping, indecent assault and other charges.

The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard (https://bit.ly/20XY1uI ) reports that the girl agreed to care for Brown’s disabled fiancee as part of the loan agreement, which also required her father to repair Brown’s home.

But the girl tells police Brown restrained her Tuesday with leg shackles, handcuffs and a ball gag. She says Brown made her touch his genitals, then sleep in the leg shackles.

Police say the girl freed herself and texted her father, who called 911.

The girl’s father isn’t facing charges.

Brown’s preliminary hearing is Feb. 17. He doesn’t have an attorney listed in court records.
