According to the arrest affidavit, Julmeus instructed the boy to pack a bag and get in the car and the boy obliged, ABC News reports. 

After leaving the boy on the side of the road in front of the police department without “food, water or money” or a phone to contact anyone, he returned home, the affidavit states, ABC News reports.

A Haines City police spokesman said they will not detail the relationship between the boy and the man because he is a minor and they want to protect his identity, according to ABC News. 

Julmeus was not found when authorities went to the home, but there were two other minors there without adult supervision, ABC News reports. 

The 30-year-old man is facing three counts of negligent child abuse, ABC News reports.
