Man Ties Boy To Radiator, Pours Boiling Water Down Pants, Scrapes Skin off Boy With Cheese Grater

Posted: November 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

A man has been jailed for six years after he tied a 14-year-old boy to a radiator, threw boiling water down his trousers and removed skin from his knees, knuckles and fingertips with a cheese grater.

Alan Ellis (21) pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to false imprisonment and assault causing harm to the teenager on March 12th, 2012.

Ellis, of Rathmines Road Lower, Rathmines, brought the boy into a flat and said he wanted to show him how to tie a particular knot. He then used a hoover flex to tie the victim to the radiator before he tortured him for almost hour and a half.

Ellis has since been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.

A victim impact report before the court said the now 16-year-old boy had burns to his genitals and inner thighs. It was initially believed he would need skin grafts but the skin has since healed. He continues to receive treatment.

His mother outlined in the statement that the assault has changed her son’s life and he has since left school.
