CHILLICOTHE, MO (KCTV) -

Police in Livingston County describe a harrowing attack on a teenager after two other teens lured him out into a remote area. 

The teenager told police the other two kids beat him, choked him and tried to tie him up. 

Police say they also tried to hit him in the head with a rock, then threatened to stab him and leave him to die. 

"It's scary to think about things like that happening," said parent Misty Freeman. 

The sheriff's office is not releasing his name because of his age.

The teen was treated at a local hospital and the sheriff's office detained the two other teens. They are recommending adult criminal charges. 

"The incident could have easily turned out much worse," the sheriff's office said in a statement. 

Scott Ireland says his daughters go to school with the teenager who was attacked. 

He says stories like these are the reason he keeps close tabs on where his children go and who they're with. 

"Just keep an eye on them, know where they are at all times," he said. "If they can't be here, I'd prefer to be with them or they're with their mother."

No one else was hurt following the incident.
