Wiki – Biography
Oregon police are searching for more victims of a suspected violent sex offender, after one of his reported survivors claimed she was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and locked in a cinder block cell. Following the reported escape of the Washington woman from an alleged makeshift cell hidden in the garage on the man’s property in Klamath Falls, Oregon, the FBI is now searching for additional victims after the defendant, 29-year-old Negasi Zuberi, was taken into federal custody for alleged interstate kidnapping. That charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
“This woman was kidnapped, chained, sexually assaulted, and locked in a cinder block cell. Police say she pounded on the door with her hands until they bled so she could free herself from it. Her quick thinking and her will to survive may have saved other women from a similar nightmare,” said Deputy Special Agent in Charge Stephanie Shark of the FBI Portland field office.

Charges on Negasi Zuberi
According to the FBI, on July 15, Zuberi allegedly traveled 450 miles from her Oregon home to Seattle, where police say she approached a prostitute while she was posing as an undercover police officer. The victim alleges in a statement provided to investigators that Zuberi pointed a Taser at her and placed handcuffs and shackles on her before forcing her into the backseat of her car. He then transported the woman, she says, back to her home in Oregon, a trip of approximately seven and a half hours, allegedly sexually assaulting her on the return trip.
Upon arriving at her home in Klamath Falls, Zuberi allegedly placed the woman in a cell in her garage. While Zuberi was allegedly out of the house, the woman was finally able to escape from her alleged cell by repeatedly banging on the metal door. She reportedly fled the property and flagged down a passing driver who called 911.
Zuberi reportedly fled the area but was later apprehended in Reno, Nevada, more than four hours from Klamath Falls. “We are lucky that this brave woman escaped and alerted the authorities. Through swift police action, we were able to arrest Zuberi the next day. While she may have helped protect future victims, sadly we have now linked Zuberi to additional violent sexual assaults in at least four states, and there could be more,” said Agent Shark.
FBI investigators have extended their search for possible victims to several states beyond Washington. Zuberi has reportedly resided in 10 states in as many years, including California, Colorado, Utah, Florida, New York, New Jersey and Alabama. The FBI announced that it has reason to believe that the alleged assault in the Pacific Northwest was not an isolated incident and that there may be more Zuberi victims to come forward with sexual assault allegations.Read More…….
