- The man allegedly forced the girl into a car and drove her 500 miles from Berlin.
A teenage girl was reportedly kidnapped and taken to an apartment in Germany’s Black Forest, where she was tied up and repeatedly raped by a man she had met on vacation.
The 18-year-old woman had been missing since last Tuesday and was found captive by the man, 22, whom she first met while abroad.
The couple reportedly met again at the woman’s apartment in Berlin, where he stayed with her for some time.
Things took a dark turn when the man threatened the woman with a gun and tied her up, before forcing her into his car and driving her almost 500 miles to Kinzigtal.
There he took her to an apartment where she was raped for several days before being discovered after her family raised the alarm.

Friends and family had searched for the teenager for three days before reporting her as a missing person to police.
The man, originally from Lahr in southwestern Germany, was arrested and is said to remain in police custody.
Police who searched the apartment said they found a blank gun. They added that the property was not the man’s home but was “accessible” to him. BILD reports.
A police spokesman said: “Interviews were carried out and during the investigation a suspicion arose that there may have been a sexual offense and that the offense of deprivation of liberty had been committed.”
