A South Hills man is being charged after police said he lured children into his home and locked it there.

Police said this happened in broad daylight on Friday, and 11 News was informed that people are concerned the suspect will be released on bail as he awaits his next day in court.

According to the indictment, two boys under the age of 8 were playing outside on Elmbrook Lane in Scott Township on Friday.

According to police, Sean Conboy invited them to his home to watch YouTube videos.

Once they got inside, the police said Conboy was giving the kids tea, and at one point Conboy picked up one of the kids and took him to the bedroom. He also picked up the other boy and put him outside.

The complaint goes on to say that the kid outside started screaming and the one inside said he was locked up.

According to the police, the two children managed to escape after 10 to 15 minutes. Police said the parents only knew Conboy by his first name and said he had recently moved into the area.
