British model 'kidnapped in Milan for Dark Web auction'

However, on arrival, she was drugged and kidnapped, while her abductor put her up for auction with a starting bid of $353,000 on the #Dark Web.

When she walked into the apartment where the photo shoot was supposed to take place, two men attacked her, police said.

The British Foreign Office said only that it is providing consular support to a British woman in Milan and that it is in touch with local authorities.

Lukasz Herba was arrested July 17th outside the British consulate in Milan while accompanying the woman, said Lorenzo Bucossi, the head of the Milan Police Mobile Command unit.

According to the Italian police, the suspect used encrypted accounts to ask the model's agent for $300,000 to stop the online auction from going ahead.

The woman was kept handcuffed to furniture but was freed and taken to the British embassy in Milan, despite the ransom not being paid.

The woman in her 20s, who has not been named, allegedly flew over to Milan from Paris to attend the shoot after being told to by her United Kingdom agent.

As reported by the Italian media outlet, Corriere Della Sera, Herba requested the model for an alleged photo shoot in Milan.
