According to a report by the New York Post on the 5th, an Australian news network reported that an Australian couple was accused of kidnapping several young women between the ages of 17 and 24 as sex slaves, and some of them were also labeled as the “property” of the man involved.
According to the report, Australian police found evidence in support of “sexual slavery and organized prostitution” in a raid in Queensland this week, Matthew James Markcrow, 35, and his girlfriend Crystal Mary, 23, Crystal Marie Sawyer appeared in Brisbane Court on the 5th.
According to the police, the victim was drugged under control of living, economic and working conditions.
Photos posted by Macrow on social media also show some victims being tattooed with “Matt M’s property.”
According to the Australian media, Maclau is charged with illegal prostitution, recording in violation of the right to privacy, violating the decree on electronic information, and engaging in the business of sexual slavery of girls under the age of 18.
Sawyer was charged with illegal prostitution and violating the Electronic Information Act.
Macrow has been in custody, and his girlfriend has been released on bail – although there are allegations that she controls the girls and may help her boyfriend run a “sex slave” business during his absence.
Australian police officer Mark Hughes said, “The police noticed during the search that the other girls had been following Sawyer’s instructions…
She (Sawyer) showed a certain degree of control over the other girls.” Defense attorney Lily Berkeley argued that there was no conclusive evidence that Sawyer was involved in the business, and said it was “some premature” to file the charges.
The judge granted Sawyer bail on the condition that she could not contact witnesses and report to the police twice a week.
