Woman says she was held captive in SC for 3 weeks

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — A young Mexican woman says she was held captive in a North Charleston home, assaulted and expected to work as a prostitute.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that police have arrested one woman in connection with the allegations and are searching for two men.

Rubi Bertaud-Cabrera has been charged with human trafficking and is being held on a $500,000 bond. It couldn’t be immediately determined if she has a lawyer.

Police spokesman Spencer Pryor says a neighbor saw the young woman looking lost and confused, and called police. The young woman, whose name has not been released, says she was brought to the U.S. from Mexico believing she would work as a housekeeper.
