A woman is free after reportedly being chained to a basement pole and held captive for sex in an Indianapolis home.
Authorities apprehended Maurice Nelson, 28, for a list of charges including rape and criminal confinement Thursday.
Nelson allegedly picked the woman up at her hotel room after the pair met while speaking on a chat line July 10. They arrived to Nelson’s house and began having sex when he attacked her with pepper spray, reports Fox 59.
Nelson allegedly proceeded to handcuff her and force her into his basement, where she was restrained in shackles. A padlock kept chains secured around her neck.
Claiming to be a police officer, Nelson reportedly pretended to use a radio before beating her with a baton and raping her.
The woman recounted that Nelson didn’t like her hair so he summarily ripped it out and cut it with scissors.
Nelson threatened the victim with years of captivity and torture such as cutting off her fingers, and threatening to release his dogs if she attempted to escape. He also reportedly destroyed the victim’s cellphone in a blender.
The sex criminal allegedly had plans to get her pregnant and capture more women, the victim claimed. The victim was discovered when neighbors heard screaming and called police July 14 in the evening.
