Kidnappers ‘menaced Russian woman’

Three ethnic Greeks from the former Soviet Union are believed to have abducted a young Russian woman, detained her against her will and threatened to send her to an Albanian brothel unless she paid them 20,000 euros, police in Athens said on Saturday after arresting two men. Officers tracked down Dimitrios Ekoutsidis, 21, and Dimitrios Silidis, 19, on Thursday after Hanna Ramanenko, 22, escaped from the window of the apartment in Rafina where they were allegedly detaining her and informed local police. Ramanenko said the men abducted her from the Anatoli nightspot where she is employed on Syngrou Avenue as she was leaving and took her to the Rafina flat, where they deprived her of her passport and work permit. It was unclear when she was abducted. Police are now seeking Anestis Kangelidis, 22.
