1. “Do you want to die?” A woman was sexually assaulted and held captive for four days in Victoria.
Robert Wilson continued to run a car-wrecking business from his home and had friends visit while he secretly held a woman captive inside his home.
Wilson allegedly repeatedly sexually assaulted the woman and threatened her with a crossbow while she was held captive for four days after an online hook-up, Victorian police say.
The 39-year-old connected with 32-year-old father-of-two Wilson via dating app “Badoo” around two months ago and they had gone on several dates, court documents show.
Wilson picked up the Vietnamese woman from her job and drove her to his Darley property, northwest of Melbourne last Monday.
As soon as they were inside the house the 32-year-old allegedly began to punch the victim in the head, stomp on her stomach and slam her into the floor.
“The victim was then imprisoned inside the property and threatened with a number of weapons, including a crossbow,” police said in a statement.
Wilson dragged her into the bedroom where he raped her and continued to beat her when she resisted, according to the remand summary.
The court document showed the victim “begged him to stop as it was so painful.”
At one point he allegedly started to strangle her demanding money and asking the victim “do you want to die”.
The woman relented and Wilson allegedly transferred $3000 from her bank account into his own.
