Pole detained over abduction of British model in Italy

The woman was held for six days in Milan Italy

Milan daily newspaper Corriere della Sera reports the 20-year-old model who has not been named was lured to a fake photo shoot on July 11.

Police say she was injected with an anaesthetic when she arrived at a Milan apartment, put inside a suitcase and taken in the boot of a auto to a village in the Piedmont region. The 20-year-old has given statements to police.

The woman was kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers in a bedroom for a week, police said.

Italian media reports that Herba has links to the "Black Death" criminal organisation that works on the dark web.

Lukasz Pawel Herba, who has British residency, was picked up by Milan police on July 18, a day after the model was released and dropped off at the British consulate in the city.

He said the woman was to be sold to the highest bidder on deep web pornographic sites and threatened to kill her if police were notified.

Authorities said the kidnappers were going to release her "because she had a 2-year-old child" and their "rules exclude kidnapping mothers".




According to court documents, the woman was drugged by her abductor and held in a small town in the north-western Piedmont region of Italy.

She then woke up handcuffed before her kidnapper attempted to auction her online.

Prosecutors described the kidnapping as a "very well-organised seizure" and added he was contacted over the internet two days later with requests to "buy" her for sexual purposes.

Officers are now investigating the incident after the man was captured with the model.

Investigators are exploring the possibility the woman was abducted so she could be auctioned off online as a sex slave, according to reports.

The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, was held prisoner for a week after being drugged, authorities said.
