Italian police said on Saturday that a 20-year-old British model was drugged and kidnapped in Milan while her kidnapper threatening to “auction” her on the internet unless a ransom of $300,000 was paid.
The police said that the 20-year-old British model was apparently travelling to Milan after her agent sent her for a photo shoot, but when she reached the studio the next day, she was drugged, kidnapped, handcuffed and held a hostage in a Milan apartment.
Her British agent informed the police when she failed to return to London and he received the subsequent ransom demand.
Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, a Polish national from Szczecin who lives in the UK, was arrested while he was dropping the woman outside the British consulate in Milan. The woman was set free after the kidnapper found that she is a mother of a child, which, according to “rules!” does not suit the sex trade market.
The kidnapper said:
“You have a two-year-old child and our rules exclude mothers.”
“You are being released with a warning. You are certainly aware of your value on human slavery market. A mistake was made by capturing you”
“You have agreed to pay outstanding costs of your release of $50,000. We expect that money to be paid in Bitcoin within one month. Any sort of disobedience will result in your elimination.”
The crime took place on 11th July and released on 17th July, the British woman is now safe.
