Man Keeps 12 Girls As Hostages In House For 18 Years

Police in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania have discovered 12 girls in residence of a man, who was later accused of sexually assaulting one teenager among the girls, local media reported on Monday. Police searched the home of 51-year-old Lee Kaplan after a neighbour called the authorities in growing concern about the weirdness of the house. It said that Kaplan was found living with 12 girls from six months to 18 years. The 18-year-old told police that she and Kaplan had a 3 year-old and six month-old baby.

The police said that the teenager being sexually assaulted was given to Kaplan by her parents when she was 14 after the man helped solve a financial crisis of the family. They said officials are working to verify where the other children were from. Report says Kaplan faces charges including sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor and aggravated indecent assault.
