A man who drugged several African women and then sexually abused them in his ‘torture dungeon’ has been jailed.
The 63-year-old man, only identified as Urs W, would meet the women on dating websites and then give them drinks spiked with date rape drug rohypnol.
He would trick his victims into consuming the beverages by paying them 2,000 CHF (1,758 GBP) and telling them it was medication that would make them enjoy their time together.
Once his victims had taken the knockout drugs he would take them to a property he was renting in Hausen, Switzerland, and abuse them in the cellar.
The horrific assaults included beating the women on the breasts with various objects, using vacuum pumps, clothespins, electricity and even a mouth spreader.
When the women cried out in pain, he forced them to perform oral sex.
Urs W. was finally caught in 2014 when firemen dealing with a flood discovered an illegal cannabis plantation at the industrial property he rented in Hausen, according to according to 20min.ch.
Police were called in and they found his torture dungeon and extensive video material of the shocking abuse.
An investigation later uncovered details of the victims who were assaulted between November 2010 and December 2013.
Officers found a bed, lights, video camera, television, anaesthesia tablets and Viagra, prosecutor Elisabeth Strebel told the court in Brugg.
A report from a forensic psychiatric analysis described Urs W. as exhibiting ‘behaviour indicative of sexual sadism and a significant risk of relapse.’
Urs W. had 48 files with child pornography, 15 with animal pornography and footage that showed women being tormented, according to the indictment.
He admitted he filmed various sex acts but said the women knew what they were doing when they took his medication and had agreed to the sexual acts in advance.
‘I have paid for everything and got what I wanted,’ he said.
‘Without video we would not be here. Nothing would have happened to anyone. I had my fun, and the women their money.’
Urs W., an electrical engineer from the town of Hendschiken, was sentenced to eight years in prison. – Metro
