Man arrested over British model kidnapped in Italy
Italian police said on Saturday 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 $300,000 was paid.
Police said in a statement the 20-year-old Briton had arrived in Milan on July 10 for an alleged photo shooting arranged through her agent.
The next day she was assaulted and drugged, and was kept prisoner by suspect Lukasz Pawel Herba, a British resident born in Poland.
Herba freed her on July 17 and accompanied her to the British consulate in Milan, where he was arrested.
No ransom appears to have been paid, police said.
