Man gets 5 years for kidnapping Louisiana woman

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Louisiana man has been sentenced to five years in prison for kidnapping a woman and taking her to what police say was a “house of horrors,” filled with trap doors, hidden cameras and other creepy features.

The New Orleans Advocate reports 59-year-old Mario Perez Roque pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree kidnapping and conspiracy.

Authorities say Perez and another man armed with a gun kidnapped a woman who had denied Perez’s romantic advances. She was taken in 2015 to a New Orleans home in which where a grave-like hole had been dug into a bedroom floor and hidden cameras watched over rooms. She was blindfolded and restrained, but managed to escape.

She told police she didn’t get a good look at the other kidnapper.
