SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO – A 33-year-old San Francisco man and an 18-year-old Stockton woman have been arrested on suspicion of abducting a 22-year-old woman and forcing her to work as a prostitute, police said.

At 6 a.m. Sunday, officers were called to the area of South Airport Boulevard and Wondercolor Lane in South San Francisco for a report of a woman who had been assaulted by a man armed with a gun, the South San Francisco Police Department said in a news release.

Officers found the victim at a business on the 300 block of South Airport Boulevard.

The suspects were found nearby in a vehicle and were taken into custody, police said.

An investigation revealed the victim had been abducted at gunpoint in Oakland on Sunday. Police said the suspects drove the victim to South San Francisco, where they assaulted her. She was then forced to prostitute herself in Oakland and San Francisco, police said.

The victim was taken back to South San Francisco, where she was held in a hotel room against her will, police said. She eventually escaped her captors and called for help.

The suspects were booked into San Mateo County jail. The San Francisco man was booked on charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, false imprisonment, human trafficking, pandering by procuring, criminal threats, pimping, stalking and kidnapping for ransom. The Stockton woman was booked on charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, false imprisonment, criminal threats, stalking and kidnapping for ransom.

At the time of his arrest, the man was on post release community supervision for pandering, police said.

The victim received services through the San Mateo County Human Trafficking Initiative and was reunited with her family, police said.

Cops Find Beaten ‘Sex Slave’ Held Captive in Dog Cage

Police in Georgia have reportedly rescued a woman who was found naked and “beaten severely” while allegedly being held as a “sex slave” inside a dog cage.

Authorities in Richmond County were alerted to the captive woman’s situation late Tuesday after a former resident of the Augusta home visited to pick up some of his belongings.

“Upon entering the room he observed an unknown light brown-skinned female that was naked, beaten severely, and currently locked in a dog cage,” police said in an incident report, according to local news outlet 12 On Your Side.

The man reportedly told investigators he had overheard someone in the home say several people were on their way to “have their way with her,” which he understood “basically meant to rape her.”

One of the five people arrested allegedly told him: “She stole a bunch of stuff from me so she is going to be my sex slave and I am going to pimp her out until she pays it off.”

While he said he feared retaliation from someone in the home, and knew that at least two people there were armed, he felt compelled to save the woman in the cage, according to the incident report.

Police soon surrounded the home and found a nightmarish scene inside, including the female captive, who was “injured and emotionally distraught” —and “human and animal feces” found in different rooms.

Five people were arrested after the disturbing discovery, all of them charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime. Police identified the suspects as 32-year-old Shawna Powell, 19-year-old Dawson Weston, 24-year-old Demichael Dawson, 29-year-old Anjelika Figueroa, and 18-year-old Savannah Piazzi.

It was not immediately clear how long the unnamed victim had been locked in the cage; nor was it clear what relation, if any, she had to the other people in the home.

Police said she had visible injuries to her face and was taken away by ambulance for medical treatment.
