German woman found naked with broken bones, shaved head
A German man has been arrested in France after his wife was found naked inside a “torture room” with her head shaved and her legs and fingers broken. The 55-year-old man is accused of holding her 53-year-old wife captive in her apartment since 2011, when she claims her husband first kidnapped her.

Reports say the woman was able to steal her husband’s cell phone and call the German police from her apartment on Sunday, August 6. The agents alerted their French counterparts across the border in the Moselle region, who conducted a search of Forbach’s apartment a day later, on August 7. When he was initially confronted by police, the man is understood to have denied officers entry to the apartment. However, officials were able to enter.
Inside, they made the horrific discovery, finding the frightened victim locked inside a “protected room”, French media reported, citing a police source. She said that she had a shaved head, that her legs and fingers had been broken in the past, and it looked like she hadn’t eaten in a long time. Police said the bedroom was locked with metal wire.
She was treated by doctors and immediately taken to the hospital, while the man, who is now known to the police, was detained. A case has been opened by Metz judicial police investigators who reportedly found a ‘torture bench’ inside the home, as well as a notebook in which the man is said to have noted the time he fed the alleged victim.
Officials also found metal bracing installed on the windows, though officers noted that the apartment also houses about a dozen cats, and that fencing may have been installed to prevent the animals from escaping. The man faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated rape, and barbaric acts of torture, reports say.Read More……..
