A German national has been arrested on suspicion of torturing, raping and imprisoning his wife at their home in Forbach, eastern France. The woman claims she was imprisoned for 12 years.

A 53-year-old woman was found in a bedroom whose entrance was secured with metal wire. He was half-naked, malnourished, with a shaved head and broken limbs.

55 years old German was arrested on the night between Sunday and Monday and is in detention in Metz in the east France.

French radio RMC reported that his wife, who had “both legs and fingers broken”, was taken to hospital. According to police sources, she was probably tortured.

Another police source said the woman managed to gain access to a phone and called the German police, who notified French colleagues.

According to reports, a notebook was found in the apartment with the man’s notes, including the hours when he fed his victim.

French prosecutor Olivier Glady said the 55-year-old husband told police while in custody that his wife was suffering from an “unspecified illness”. The man claimed his wife’s illness was “well known to neighbours”, who described the couple as “discreet”. The husband was not known to the French services.

On the other hand, the German daily Bild reported after talking to neighbors that they had heard screams coming from the apartment, but the detained man claimed that his wife had cancer and was screaming in pain.
