Belgium ‘abduction’: Woman uses phone map to provide her location


 Share This On:

(BBC) – A woman who says she was abducted in Belgium has been found after locating herself on her smartphone and sharing the address with her brother.

The 19-year-old student said five men kidnapped her in front of a nightclub in the capital Brussels on Friday.

She told police she was drugged and kept locked in a flat in the nearby city of Charleroi for three days.

Two suspects have been arrested and charged with kidnapping and rape. They deny any wrongdoing.

The alleged kidnappers had taken the woman’s device but on Monday she managed to recover it, EFE news agency reports.

She then located herself via Google Maps and sent the address in Charleroi – 50km (30 miles) from Brussels – to her brother, who alerted the authorities.

The woman accused the five men of repeatedly raping her.

In a late night operation on Monday, police also found two men – both known to the authorities – in the flat. Reports said one was born in 1992 and the other in 1994.

They said the woman had a relationship with one of them and had followed the group voluntarily.

The search for three other suspects continues.
