    NY - Police: Man held 13-year-old as sex slave (Buffalo NY)

    BUFFALO, N.Y., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Police say a Buffalo, N.Y., man kept a 13-year-old girl prisoner in his home for nearly six months, raping her more than 100 times.

    Michael Abdallah, 26, was charged Friday with second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and custodial interference, the Buffalo News reported.

    Authorities allege Abdallah kept the runaway girl locked up inside his apartment, which reportedly had no doorknobs and which could only be opened by using a key to two dead-bolt locks, the newspaper said.

    Police said Abdallah also forced the alleged victim to baby-sit his 1-year-old son.

    The News quoted police reports as alleging Abdallah began having sex with girl more than a year ago, before she was allegedly kidnapped and held from July through December.

    Runaway was locked in apartment from July through December

    Abdallah is not married and itís unclear who is the boyís mother.
    ...................

    Abdallah also was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

    Neighbors on Thomas, a street of modest, occupied houses, were stunned by the allegations.

    ďI had no idea. Oh my God, I canít believe it,Ē said one neighbor, who didnít want her name used.

    Abdallah had occasional male and female visitors to his home, according to neighbors, who said they didnít know a 13-year-old girl also was living there.

    ďHe seemed friendly enough. He seemed like he was trying to fix up the house,Ē said a neighbor.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I wonder if we have a thread on this missing girl?

    What a POS! And why only 2nd degree rape? Why not 1st?

    What is the Custodial Interference charge all about? He's not a relative, is he....a dad?

    I don't think anything is more dehumanizing and terrifying than a room without doorknobs. Literally a prison. Poor little girl. The only glimmer I see here is that she had contact with a baby (I wonder if the child was hers?) which would have given her some joy such as Elizabeth Fritzl and Jaycee had with their children.

    I think the custodial interference charge stems from this POS's interference in the parents' rights to custody of the child.

    You could be very right that the baby belongs to this girl. She would have been 11/12 when the child was born if he is a year old already.

    I would really like to see a few more details on this case. Especially some kind of comment from the girl's parents.

    A search of 18 Thomas Street didn't turn up this guy's name. Sometimes it doesn't always list an owner though.

    Poor little girl. You have to wonder if the "visitors" knew this child was even in there. Heck if even the baby was in there.

    There's a famous kickboxer from Buffalo with that last name. I doubt this is him of course although that guy I recall at one time got in alot of trouble for ID theft. I just recall him being a good kickboxer and handsome.

    O.K. in this link neighbors are skeptical a young girl could have been held against her will. Then you have neighbors astonished who had never seen the girl. I know it's shocking, but come on. I have neighbors who no joke haven't had their kids outside their doors in no lie months at a time. I couldn't tell you if I saw a 13 year old girl coming or going out of that house if she was captive or not. You just never know. People are so da*n shifty.

    Prayers for this little girl and for the baby doll. This poor young girl I wonder how this predator came upon her.

    Filly, ITA about the "visitors". Maybe they were quite aware of the fact that this young girl was there.....and that's why they were visiting.

    Oh Iz, you are right. Oh heaven help that poor child. He may have been selling her.

    This makes me so sick and so sad.

    It shocks me that visitors to the house would not find it odd that there were no door knobs inside the house. That would be a HUGE fire risk. I wonder if there were bars on the windows also? I am surprised she didn't try to get out by breaking a window. Poor thing!

    Sunnie the photographs of the house didn't show bars on the windows. Not that I saw anyway.

    We're thinking the vistors may have been involved so they would understand why there were no door knobs.

    Admittedly twice in my life I wound up at a house with no front door handle. Both times it freaked me the heck out. No place I needed to be anyway. The one time I looked at my friend who is my childhood friend and went "There's no freakin door knob. That can't amount to anything good".

    Do any of the articles explain how the girl got away?

    Also, I'm really wondering about the 1yo baby. Did he have someone else held prisoner before that ended up having a baby?
    Since she was held for 6 months I don't think the baby is hers.
    Please don't ever let him be free again, if he is able to he'll do this again, only have a deeper dungeon to use!!

    If, an only if, the visitors were totally unaware of the child, the doorknobs could have just been removed on some of the inside bedroom doors. However, it she was allowed in the common areas of the house and there was no front doorknob or no bathroom doorknob, these people would have obviously noticed and been complicit.

    Filly, you're surely not the only one who would freak out instantly to turn and notice that there was no doorknob. That would cause a panic attack in many people. So, did the guy carry around some sort of key to open the doors? See, an uninvolved person would have immediately noticed.

    The visitors knew.

    Article with a video: http://www.wivb.com/dpp/news/crime/M...g-teen-hostage

    I haven't watched the video yet. Article doesn't say much except that the neighbor doesn't think he is capable of such a thing (shakes head).

    I also looked through the NCMEC's missing girls from NY and really didn't see anyone that might be this young girl. I was thinking we might have a thread on her - but now I think not. Did this girl's parents make a formal missing report? Why wouldn't she be in the missing kids database? Ohhhhhhhh.....hmmmmmmm - maybe they have taken her out of the database since she has been found.... that would explain it.

    Okay - never mind.
