UK model kidnapped and held captive in Italy for six days

British model 'kidnapped and drugged' before being AUCTIONED online

Police say the British model was lured to an abandoned shop near Milan's Central Station with the promise of a photoshoot, only to be drugged, handcuffed and put in a suitcase.

The woman, aged 20, arrived in the Italian city to take part in a photo shoot but was abducted and held for five days.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We have been providing consular support to a British woman in Italy and are in touch with local authorities".

She is believed to be aged in her 20s and was rescued by police when the kidnapper tried to take her to the British Consulate in July.

Her captors seemed to have a change of heart when they found out the model had a two-year-old child, and told police their "rules exclude kidnapping mothers" and chose to try and release her, the local paper reported.

She was kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers in the bedroom for six days until she was released and taken to the British consulate in Milan.

The 20-year-old woman was attacked on July 11 by two men as she attended an arranged photo shoot.

At one point, according to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, the woman was told she could be freed upon payment of €50,000 euros (around £45,000).

A statement from Milan police headquarters detailed the woman's ordeal.

Milan police officer Lorenzo Bucossi told reporters the group the suspect was allegedly working for offered "mercenary services" on the dark web.

They also alleged Herba had dealings in "chemicals and poisons" as he faced a pre-trial hearing before magistrate Anna Magelli in Milan on Friday.

The woman's modelling agency then contacted police and Herba reportedly negotiated a ransom for about USD$60,000 ($75,000) with them.

Investigations in the case are ongoing in Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom.
