Police search for more victims after Oregon man arrested for allegedly trapping woman in cinderblock cell

The man reportedly found his victim by hiring a prostitute in Seattle.

A man has been taken into custody in Klamath Falls, Oregon after a woman managed to bust out of a cinderblock cell he had allegedly built in order to trap her in a garage, according to the Portland FBI.

The FBI said the man, 29-year-old Negasi Zuberi, who was known under other aliases such as Sakima, Justin Hyche and Justin Kouassi, picked up a prostitute in Seattle, Washington on July 15. He then pretended to be an undercover law enforcement official and handcuffed her before allegedly committing sexual assault and taking her back to his home in Klamath Falls, according to Fox 12.

“According to the complaint, this woman was kidnapped, chained, sexually assaulted, and locked in a cinderblock cell. Police say, she beat the door with her hands until they were bloody in order to break free. Her quick thinking and will to survive may have saved other women from a similar nightmare,” said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Stephanie Shark with the FBI Portland Field Office. 

The victim said that Zuberi held a taser towards her, restrained her arms and legs with handcuffs and irons, then kidnapped her for a 450-mile drive and also sexually assaulted her. 

Upon arriving at the residence in Klamath Falls, the man put her into the custom cinderblock cell. He used a metal door that was intentionally placed in reverse so the door could not be opened from inside, according to authorities. 

The woman reportedly broke free by slamming on the door repeatedly until the welds broke, allowing her to tear a hole and crawl out, per police. She then found a random person who helped her call 911. 

Zuberi later tried to escape to Reno, only to be promptly tracked down “within hours of his efforts to evade,” according to law enforcement.

Authorities reported that Zuberi is linked to a minimum of four sexual assaults in four other states. Zuberi has reportedly lived in 10 different states, in which investigators are searching for additional victims.
