When they arrived, deputies found resident Perry Simon, 50,outside of the house where he had jumped from the second story window, breaking both of his legs.
His wife, Sharon Simon, 56, escaped her second story bedroom with the help of Liberty Township fire crews and deputies. Officers said the couple thought their 16-year-old son was still inside the home.
However, authorities say the boy had tied his parents' bedroom door shut, started a fire outside their door, stole his dad's car and left the scene. He was tracked down a short time later by authorities.
