5 Arrested In Georgia After Woman Found In Trailer Naked Held In Dog Cage As “Sex Slave”

Five people have been arrested after a woman was found naked in a trailer, being held in dog cage as a sex slave, according to authorities.

Five people have been arrested in Georgia after a woman was found naked in a trailer, being held in a dog cage as a sex slave, according to authorities.

Deputies in Richmond County, Georgia were alerted to the captive woman’s situation late Tuesday after a former resident of the south Augusta trailer went back to the home to pick up belongings.

“Upon entering the room he observed an unknown light brown-skinned female that was naked, beaten severely, and currently locked in a dog cage,” deputies said in an affidavit, according to local news outlet 12 On Your Side.

According to deputies, the man told investigators that he had overheard someone in the home say several people were on their way to “have their way with her,” which he understood “basically meant to rape her.”

While he said he feared retaliation from someone in the home and knew that at least two people there were armed, he felt compelled to save the woman in the cage, according to the affidavit.

Police soon surrounded the home and found a nightmarish scene inside, including the female captive, who was “injured and emotionally distraught” and “human and animal feces” found in different rooms.

Five people were arrested after the disturbing discovery, all of them charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime.

Deputies said Shonna Powell, 32, one of the people arrested, told the man, ”She stole a bunch of stuff from me so she is going to be my sex slave and I am going to pimp her out until she pays it off.”

Deputies arrested Powell along with Anjelika Figueroa, 29; DeMichael Dawson, 24; Savannah Piazzi,18; and Dawson Weston, 19.

It was not immediately clear how long the unnamed victim had been locked in the cage; nor was it clear what relation, if any, she had to the other people in the home.

Police said she had visible injuries to her face and was taken away by ambulance for medical treatment.
