A California man has escaped from a house where he claims he was held and tortured with a hammer and a fork. The man, who has not been identified, is now receiving treatment at a hospital, but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
The man escaped from an isolated home in the California Valley, San Luis Obispo County. He called police and claimed he had been held for a number of days, during which time he was tortured.
Police subsequently went to the home and arrested two people. It’s not clear what the motivation for the alleged torture might have been, nor is it clear whether the man knew the people he claims were holding him.
