28 year-old taxi driver taken into custody.



A bizarre kidnapping of a 26 year-old woman five days ago from a bus stop in Asker has left police clueless as to her whereabouts.

Fee

The missing Norwegian-Pakistani woman rang police last Wednesday at 06:44 on her mobile, telling them she’d been abducted from a bus stop on Kirkeveien near a Prix shop in Høvik in Bærum municipality.

The woman also said she was in the boot of a dark-coloured car with her hands bound, and her kidnapper had first driven towards Asker, then stopped the car and opened the lid. She described her assailant as being a fit, bald man in his early ‘20s.

“I’ve been kidnapped, and the man says he’s going to get 100,000 kroner for the job,” she said, writes Dagbladet.

Police’s theory that the kidnapping is genuine was confirmed after a witness reported seeing a man dragging the woman towards the car.

Since then several witnesses have come forward to confirm the victim’s identity, but superintendant Olav Brubakk of Asker and Bærum police district tells Aftenposten they’re no nearer solving the case.

Sexual fantasies

However, police have taken a 28 year-old taxi driver into custody and charged him with abducting the woman.

NRK reports the driver has admitted to sending text messages several weeks prior to kidnapping the victim saying he was extremely fascinated by her, and asking to meet; something which she repeatedly turned down.

During a search of his apartment police also found a shopping list for handcuffs and tape. Under interrogation, the man said they were to be used as part of a sex game with a prostitute he was fantasising about.

Sceptical

Petter Sørensen, lawyer for the accused, tells Dagbladet his client vehemently denies his guilt, and is extremely anxious about what’ll happen in the next few weeks.

Sørensen is also sceptical to whether or not the woman was kidnapped at all.

“She’s had good reasons to disappear, for both personal and family reasons. My client acknowledges nothing, and could have almost admitted anything just to be freed,”

But Børge Enoksen, the police’s lawyer, says he believes the woman from Bærum is being hidden, as she’s been unable to make contact with them since her disappearance.
