TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Since the rescue of a teenage girl surnamed Liu (劉) from her captor on Tuesday (Sept. 1), details have begun to emerge from her ordeal, including her being threatened with an "electric shock collar" and forced to hide inside a secret compartment.

After her disappearance for 66 hours, police were finally able to locate a missing 14-year-old middle school student and her alleged abductor, a 31-year-old man surnamed Lo (羅) who was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting two middle school girls in 2018. At 8:50 on Tuesday morning Police found Lo inside an apartment rented by his mother on Zhongxing Road in Hsinchu County's Zhudong Township.

Police thoroughly searched the apartment three times before discovering a hidden trap door in the ceiling above a bunk bed, revealing the missing student cowering inside a hidden compartment on the 4th floor of the apartment. Both were brought back to a nearby police station for questioning.
