A person has been arrested in Oregon after a girl escaped a cinderblock cell in his storage, the FBI has mentioned.
The company mentioned that Negasi Zuberi, 29, from Klamath Falls, Oregon went to Seattle and picked up a prostitute on 15 July, pretending to be an undercover officer.
The lady instructed the authorities that Mr Zuberi aimed a Taser at her and put her in handcuffs and leg irons earlier than putting her at the back of his automobile, in response to KPTV.
The sufferer mentioned that Mr Zuberi sexually assaulted her a number of instances through the 450-mile drive from Seattle to Klamath Falls, a journey estimated to take about seven-and-a-half hours.
After arriving at his house, the suspect allegedly positioned the sufferer within the makeshift cinderblock cell within the storage.
The Assistant Special Agent in Charge on the FBI Portland Field Office, Stephanie Shark, instructed KPTV that the authorized criticism states that the “woman was kidnapped, chained, sexually assaulted, and locked in a cinderblock cell. Police say she beat the door with her hands until they were bloody in order to break free. Her quick thinking and will to survive may have saved other women from a similar nightmare”.
The lady broke down the door of the cell when Mr Zuberi was away from the home and managed to flee and flagged down a driver who then known as 911.
Mr Zuberi fled after the lady managed to get away. He was detained in Reno – greater than 4 hours from Klamath Falls.
The FBI has acknowledged that since Mr Zuberi has resided in additional than 10 states since 2016 – together with California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, and Nevada – the investigation is increasing to seek for additional victims.
