6 arrested after man found beaten near Crandon

CRANDON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say four adults and two juveniles have been arrested after a man was badly beaten and left for dead in the woods near Crandon.

Court records say the man was found Wednesday and his injuries are so severe a leg may require amputation.

Authorities say the man was assaulted over two days in a home in Wabeno on Monday and Tuesday, then was taken more than 20 miles to Crandon, where he was left for more than 20 hours.

He was found Wednesday by two all-terrain vehicle drivers. WLUK-TV reports a search of the Wabeno home turned up iron shackles and handcuffs.

WSAW-TV reports that authorities say the adult suspects beat the victim because they believed he touched a child inappropriately.
