A British model arrived in Milan, Italy for a photo shoot and was instead kidnapped and set to be sold on an internet auction, according to Italian authorities Saturday.

The kidnappers lured the 20-year-old model to Milan under the guise of a “photo shoot” July 10 but instead drugged her with ketamine and stuffed her into a suitcase.

They then brought the woman to Borgial, a small town north of Turin, where she was handcuffed to furniture. Her kidnappers demanded that her agent pay a $300,000 ransom to prevent the online auction from taking place.

The group of men let the model go after six days when they found out that she was a mother. The group’s rules “exclude mothers,” according to one of the kidnappers.

One of the suspects is Lukasz Pawel Herba, a 30-year-old polish citizen who lives in England. Herba is currently in custody and claimed to be part of the “Black Death Group,” a human trafficking organization.
