FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – A Washington D.C. man will go to Wrentham District Court on Monday after being accused of forcing his young two daughters into the trunk of his car.
Michael Fekete faces child endangerment charges following the incident Sunday afternoon in Foxborough.
Authorities said it happened outside a nursing home where the girls were visiting their grandmother. Police said witnesses reported seeing Fekete stuff the nine- and 11-year-old girls into the trunk, then let them out and put them in the back seat.
It wasn't clear how long the children were in the trunk. Temperatures were around 90 degrees in the area.
A spokeswoman for the state Department of Social Services says the children were turned over to family members who live in Massachusetts and their mother is driving up from Washington to retrieve them
