Brit model 'placed up for sale after being kidnapped and drugged

Italian police have released a mugshot of a 30-year-old Polish man who they say has been arrested over the abduction of a British model in Italy last month.

She was subsequently drugged, forced into a suitcase and driven away to a house outside the city, where she was handcuffed and held captive.

The kidnapper was captured by police while he was accompanying the model to the British Consulate in Milan. He was jailed for investigation of suspected kidnapping for extortion purposes.

It is now unclear why the kidnapping came to an end.

A Milan court heard the woman arrived in Milan on July 11 and was seized near the central station when she was drugged with ketamine.

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

Amanda Knox Says Michelle Carter Needs Sympathy After 'Wrongful Conviction'
Among dozens of messages, she said he should " get back in " when leaving his pickup truck filling with toxic carbon monoxide. Carter had a bench trial, meaning Moniz heard the case and decided whether or not Carter was guilty - not a jury.

The woman was drugged, handcuffed and loaded into a bag and put into the boot of auto which was driven to an isolated house in Borgial, northwest of Turin.

She was loaded into the trunk of a auto and taken to a cabin on the outskirts of Lemie, a remote town in the Italian Alps, she told authorities.

But reports in La Stampa alleged Herba had contacted the model's agent and demanded the same £270,000 price for her freedom. In the meantime, the staff at the consulate had phoned the police to say a man had called them to say he was dropping off a British woman he had "found".

Police believe that Pawel Herba has advertised the "sale" of the woman on the internet, as well as demanding a ransom from the woman's agent of $300,000.

A UK-based modelling agency sent the woman to the "photoshoot", and once she arrived, was promptly injected with the powerful anaesthesia Ketamine, handcuffed, and stuffed into a suitcase with a pillow case over her head, according to the report.

The Foreign Office confirmed it was providing assistance to the woman in Italy and is also cooperating with local authorities.
