ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) - A woman who said she was held as a sex slave for three weeks contacted Fox 2 for help finding a safe place to stay.

“My boyfriend forced me to have sex with a lot of men for money,” she said. “He said I was his rent.”

She said she escaped last Friday. “I was locked in a room, so I wrapped a curtain around my hand and broke the window,” she said.

She said she jumped out the window and found a place to stay for a week.

“I need to find a shelter, so he does not find me,” she said.

FOX2 was able to help her find a shelter.
