Kidnapped’ model freed by captor

The British model who claims she was abducted by a sex-slave ring told police she fended off lewd advances by one of her captors by promising to be more “intimate” with him when she was freed, according to a report.

Chloe Ayling, 20, told Italian police she was kidnapped, drugged and dragged in a bag from Milan to a remote farmhouse, where she was held while her captors tried to hawk her to Middle Eastern buyers.

She said Lukasz Herba told her he lusted after her while watching her shower, the Daily Mail reported on Wednesday (August 9, 2017).

The 30-year-old Polish national bought her underwear and chocolate during her six-day ordeal — and even slept in her bed, Ayling told police in a lengthy statement obtained by the British news outlet.

“MD (Herba) tried various sexual advances with me but I always stopped it by putting it off to the future are (sic) more intimate knowledge of each other,” she told investigators.

“In effect I was leading him to believe that we would have become more intimate friends when this kidnapping was over,” she said. “On one occasion I remember that I was in the shower and he was watching me and he told me to stay in the shower and said that he couldn’t take it any more and carried out a sex act.”

Ayling also explained why she did not try to escape when she was taken shoe shopping in Milan a day before she was released at the British consulate on July 17.

When a detective asked her if it didn’t seem strange to go on a shopping spree, she said: “I realize that but for me Herba or better yet, MD, was the one that could save me and thanks to him I could gain my freedom.

“This is the reason why I didn’t rebel and I did not ask help from the lady that was selling shoes,” she told the investigator.

Ayling told authorities that five men were involved in her kidnapping, but she only saw the faces of two of them, the Daily Mail reported.

She said one of her kidnappers had climbed into the car trunk to lie alongside her while she was bound and gagged as they headed to the remote village of Turin.

Herba, the only one arrested so far from the group calling itself Black Death, has been charged with kidnapping to extort money and falsifying documents.

Ayling told investigators that she was set free after one of the kidnappers told her his boss was furious that they had abducted the wrong person.
