A doctor has been charged with drugging, kidnapping and raping a woman in her 30s and holding her hostage in a purpose-built bunker in his home in Sweden for nearly a week.
He drugged the woman using strawberries laced with Rohypnol in her Stockholm home, after which he raped her and drove nearly 350miles to a property outside Kristianstad, south Sweden.
The 38-year-old is accused of keeping her locked up, raping and sexually abusing her for a week, but prosecutors believe he intended to keep her in the dungeon-like bunker for ‘several years’.
The pair had met once before when the 38-year-old doctor visited the woman in her flat in central Stockholm on September 12.
He is accused of drugging the woman with juice and chocolate-dipped strawberries, marking which of the berries he had laced with Rohypnol by drawing on the stem leaves.

He then raped the woman while she was passed out in her home, before transporting her in a wheelchair to his car, Aftonbladet reports.
He drove from Stockholm to his home, a large property outside Kristianstad, some 345 miles south of Stockholm, during which time he also injected her with a soporific to keep her sedated.
Prosecutors say he had brought two rubber masks of an old woman and a man with a beard to use as disguises during the car journey, which police later found in his bedroom.
Upon arrival at the property he locked the woman in the prison-like bunker where he repeatedly raped her during six days in captivity.
The man is believed to have built the 60 square meter bunker himself, with the purpose of keeping at least one person captive over a long period of time, starting five years ago.
After a few days the doctor drove back to the woman’s home in Stockholm to bring her some personal possessions, only to discover that she had been reported missing and police had broken into her flat.
The doctor is believed to have panicked, and brought the woman to Stockholm where they visited a police station together.
Prosecutors say the 38-year-old forced the woman to tell police a fake story that she was safe and well, in order to call off the search, but officers grew suspicious and took her to one side.
The woman then told police the full story of her horrific ordeal, after which the man was arrested.
‘We believe his intention has been to keep the woman locked up for several years,’ chief prosecutor Peter Claeson said in a statement.
‘We also suspect him of planning this for years. Among other things, he has built the bunker to bring one or more victims.’
