Two Bulgarian nationals (a 42-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman) have been arrested for abduction and procuring in an apartment building in the region of Omonia Square in Athens on Sunday, where they were holding a 28-year old fellow countrywoman with the aim of forcing her into prostitution.
Police detected the apartment and the offenders following a report by the woman herself. Investigations revealed that another Bulgarian had "recruited" the woman in her country and, promising legal employment in Greece, took her to an apartment in downtown Athens where he held her illegally, with the purpose of her sexual exploitation.
Many mobile phones and money were also found in the apartment and confiscated.
