Another Dungeon Dad Arrested in Poland


A Polish man was arrested for imprisoning his daughter for six years, repeatedly raping her and fathering two children with her. The crime looks similar to scandalous case involving Austrian dungeon dad Josef Fritzl who kept his daughter underground for 24 years.

A 21-year old girl, called the police after she managed to escape her home in the village of Grodzisk, east Poland, where her 45-year old father kept her locked in a room. The girl was released by her father twice, while giving birth to two of their children in 2005 and 2007 that became a result of rapes. The man also forced his daughter to leave the children, now three and 20 months old.

After the girl went to the police, the man was arrested at a train station in the town of Siedlce, where he tried to run away. He was detained for three months for the alleged sexual abuse with further investigation of the case. The man denied rape charges and refused to talk to police. "The picture the girl painted was really horrific," the officials said.

The mother of the girl is questioned by police to find out if she knew about the situation.

The story recalls an Austrian case, where a woman, now aged 42 was imprisoned and raped by her father Josef Fritzl in an underground dungeon for 24 years in Amstetten. During her captivity, she gave birth to seven children from her father. Three of them lived with their mother Elisabeth underground, while the other three lived with the man and his wife upstairs. Josef Fritzl was arrested in April and faces around 3,000 rape charges.
