Model who was ‘drugged and kidnapped to be sold as sex slave’ recalls terror
The British model who was held captive for six days as fiends tried to sell her on the internet as a sex slave feared for her life “second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour,” she told reporters in accounts published Sunday.
“I’ve been through a terrifying experience,” 20-year-old Chloe Ayling told The Telegraph after returning to her native UK.
The young stunner was drugged, handcuffed and stuffed in a bag in the trunk of a car after being lured to a fake photo shoot in Milan.
One of the plot’s masterminds was Lukasz Pawel Herba, a Polish national with ties to the shadowy underground network the Black Death Group.
Ayling provided excrutiating new details of her terrifying ordeal, which unfolded rapidly after she arrived at what she thought was a modeling assignment July 11.
“A person wearing black gloves came from behind and put one hand on my neck and one on my mouth to stop me from screaming,” she said.
“A second person wearing a black balaclava gave me an injection in my right forearm. I think I lost consciousness. When I woke up, I was wearing a pink bodysuit and the socks I am wearing now.
“I realized I was in the [trunk] of a car with my wrists and ankles handcuffed, adhesive tape on my mouth. I was inside a bag and was only able to breathe through a small hole.”
‘When the buyer gets tired of the girl bought by auction, [they] can give them to other people, and when it is no longer of interest they are to become a ‘tiger meal.’’
She said she screamed so much that her captors had to pull the car over several times.
She was eventually driven to a remote location, some 120 miles from Milan — and kept handcuffed.
“The pair tied my feet and hands to a chest, I was forced to sleep on the floor in a sleeping bag,” she said. “They watched me, they stopped me from fleeing and they threatened to kill me if I did.”
Ayling said Herba, who has admitted to the kidnapping, told her he had earned some $17 million over the past five years by selling desirable women to bidders around the Middle East, according to the newspaper.
He “explained to me that all the girls are destined for the Arab countries,” she added, according to Britain’s Sun newspaper.
