Man abducts British model, threatens to sell her online Lukasz Pawel Herba, the suspected kidnapper of a British model. Polizia Di Stato/Handout via Reuters

Milan: The Italian police on Saturday said they had arrested a 30-year-old man suspected of abducting a British model in Milan and threatening to auction her online unless a ransom of $3,00,000 was paid.

The police said in a statement that the 20-year-old Briton had arrived in Milan on July 10 for an alleged photoshoot arranged through her agent.

But when she reached the studio the next day she was assaulted and drugged, then placed in a car boot and taken to a small village near Turin where she was kept prisoner by Lukasz Pawel Herba, a British resident born in Poland, the police said.

Herba freed her on July 17 and accompanied her to the British consulate in Milan where, according to newspaper Corriere della Sera, he was arrested by police who had been alerted by the model's agent.

During her detention, Herba had demanded the agent pay $3,00,000 to avoid the model being sold online though no ransom appears to have been paid, the police said.
