A troubling video has surfaced that shows a woman being rescued by police from a Kentucky home while chained by the neck to the floor.
Body camera footage recently released to the public reveals officers attempting to gain access into a residence before using a ladder to ascend through a second-story window.
Upon entering the room in question, they discovered an evidently distressed woman with a padlocked chain secured around her neck, leading down to the floor.
Jonna Wilson, 37, had a harrowing experience when her estranged boyfriend allegedly chained her to the floor and threatened to kill her.
In order to free her from this dangerous situation, police were forced to employ the use of both a hatchet and bolt cutters.
Wilson reported to WDRB-TV that she had been subjected to a horrific attack, during which the perpetrator used a machete to chop her hair and then proceeded to beat her before chaining her to the floor.
Additionally, Wilson claimed all of her clothes were also burned in the attack.
“By leaving the victim chained up in the house with no way of calling for help or leaving, [the suspect] manifested an extreme indifference to the value of human life,” the arrest citation read.
Law enforcement officials reported that they apprehended 36-year-old Moises May two days after the incident. He was charged with kidnapping, wanton endangerment, assault (domestic violence), intimidating a legal process participant, terroristic threatening, and physical harassment. The defendant was remanded to custody on a $100,000 bond.
Wilson says she has a 1-year-old daughter with the man.
“I just want to see him get in jail,” Wilson said. “I just want justice, I want my daughter to be OK.”
