Did motherhood save British model from Bitcoin sex slave auction in Milan?

A British model was threatened with being sold in an online auction after being drugged and kidnapped in Milan, say Italian police.

Police said she was injected with an anaesthetic when she arrived at a Milan apartment, put inside a suitcase and taken in the boot of a vehicle to a village in the Piedmont region.

Lukasz Herba was arrested July 17th outside the British consulate in Milan while accompanying the woman, said Lorenzo Bucossi, the head of the Milan Police Mobile Command unit.

Detectives are unclear as to whether Herba was serious about auctioning his victim or if it was simply a threat meant to extort 300,000 euros in Bitcoin from the model's agent and family.

She was kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers in the bedroom for six days until she was released and taken to the British consulate in Milan.

Police said no one took part in auction and it was unclear if Herba was serious about the plan or whether he was a "fantasist".

Officials have released a mugshot of the suspect, named as 30-year-old Lukasz Pawel Herba.

It is now unclear why the kidnapping came to an end.

Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reports the woman was told she could be freed if a ransom of €50,000 (£45,000, $58,000) was paid, although it is not known if this money was paid.

In a letter sent to the victim upon her release, Black Death told her that a "mistake" had been made in capturing her.
