WARNING: Some of these photos are extremely graphic. 

A Texas couple has been arrested for allegedly starving their 5-year-old son and locking him in a closet under the stairs of their home in Spring, about 24 miles north of Houston, according to investigators.

Bradley Bleimeyer, 24, and the boy’s stepmother, 33-year-old Tammi Bleimeyer, have been charged with one count each of felony child endangerment.

“I’ve never seen anything like this in 28 years of law enforcement,” Chief Mark Herman, Harris County Constable, Precinct 4, told HLN.

The saga began when Harris County Constable Precinct 4 deputies responded to a disturbance call at the couple’s home on March 27.

Upon arrival, police said they found the Bleimeyers’ 16-year-old son arguing on the front lawn about the alleged abuse and neglect of a 5-year-old child.

During the investigation, police said they learned Bradley Bleimeyer’s 5-year-old son was forced to live in a closet under the stairs, according to a police press release.
