A Russian man who kept four women chained as sex slaves has been arrested after one of the abducted women was able to climb out of a 2nd story window via knotted sheets and alert authorities.
29 year old Eleanor Glebova‘s heroic actions would lead to cops raiding the home of 34 year old Emmanuel Maslow in the city of Irkutsk, in far east Russia. He would subsequently be arrested on charges of drug dealing and sex trafficking.
Cops would tell how the man would meet women in the city and bring them back to his home before trapping them and keeping them in shackles. Cops would also tell that the man had intended to create a ‘harem’ of women.
A security door is said to have rigged to prevent the women from escaping along with being allegedly plied with alcohol.
The woman who escaped gathered the courage to do so after drinking alcohol.
She knotted sheets together and climbed to safety while her captor was in the kitchen.
Told a police spokesman: ‘We returned to the apartment with her and freed the other terrified women.
‘All are getting medical treatment and the man is in custody.’
Cops declined to tell how long the women had been held but confirmed the man seemed to have planned for them to be there for a long time.
He said large quantities of drugs had also been discovered at the flat and that the man faced charges of drug dealing and sex trafficking.
Police suspect other people knew that the four women were there and that there were indications he had offered them to clients of his alleged drugs business for sex.
Cops would later reveal that the arrested man had previous convictions for forcing women into prostitution and drug dealing
