  2. Hi My name is Elana. Last year, for about a year or more my husband would lock me in the closet for hours at a time. I would try to leave the house because of the mental and physical abuse he would inflict on me. My son that was 15 at the time witnessed this throughout the year, my younger sons would huddle in my oldest son’s bedroom. I filed a police report on the anniversary of the last time he locked my in the closet. The detective wondered why I didn’t report it sooner. I was too afraid. Help
