A father has been accused of chaining his disabled daughter and taunting her by putting a sheet over her head and letting her sit like a dog.
The man, who cannot be called to protect the girl, is said to have detained her at home in Wollongong last year.
Police claim that the father and his partner – who is the girl’s mother’s new boyfriend – chained the cognitively disabled teenager after she became “aggressive” with her sister, according to Illawarra Star.

After the men reportedly placed a sheet over the girl’s head, her older sister was worried and began to record their behavior on her iPhone.
She then told the couple that her boyfriend would come to help her.
The police claim that her mother’s boyfriend kicked the phone out of the older daughter’s hands and the two men released the younger girl for fear of the consequences.
The alleged abuse only came to light after the daughter sold her iPhone to another person in November.
That person would have discovered the horrible images and given them to the police.
The images allegedly show the girl with her wrists tied in chains with a long chain that acts as a belt that the men held.
A second video allegedly shows the girl who knelt when her father’s friend held the necklace and looked like he “ordered a dog to be seated,” police said in court documents.

The father appeared on Friday at Port Kembla Local Court, south of Sydney, charged with various crimes including the taking / detention of people in company.
In a separate incident, he is also accused of attempting to care for a girl younger than 16 for sex.
Allegedly he sent indecent material and sexual messages to whom he thought it was a 14-year-old girl before he later discovered that it was actually an undercover agent.
The man will be brought to justice in April.
