Woman is free after 10 years - level 2

Woman is free after 10 years - level 2

28-05-2014 07:00

10 years ago a man kidnapped a woman. She was just 15 when she disappeared. Her captor forced her to marry him and have their child.

The woman contacted police on Tuesday. She told detectives her story. Fifteen years ago, her then boyfriend drugged her and locked her in a garage. She tried to escape two times. The man beat her afterwards. Police arrested the 41 year-old man.

Difficult words: kidnap (to take somebody somewhere by force), captor (somebody who is keeping another person prisoner), have (give birth).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you know anybody who was kidnapped?
