A WOMAN has been rescued by police after her family reported she was being held captive.
The 26-year-old Romanian woman was able to find a way of contacting her family back in Romania who in turn let the Guardia Civil know that she was being held captive at a house in Monzon, Huesca.
It took the Guardia Civil only six hours to locate the woman after Operation Agresiune was launched jointly with the Romanian Police Force after the woman reported she was being held against her will.
When they arrived at the house they arrested a 36-year-old man for abducting and abusing the woman. The young woman is currently in hospital after suffering cuts to her forearms from a knife attack.
Guardia Civil also found a number of illegal substances in the house including 18g of cocaine separated into small bags which police believe were to be sold.
The man is awaiting trial in the judicial Guardia de Monzon Instructional court of Huesca and is facing charges for abduction, grievous bodily harm, maltreatment and drug trafficking.
