A man asked a woman to help in his home and when she agreed, he kidnapped her.

Authorities in Wisconsin, said that the woman came to the man’s home because she thought that his granddaughter was there.

54-year-old Allen Jamroz asked the woman if she can help him with his remodeling project in his basement.

The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office said that after the woman agreed and went downstairs, Jamroz used a stun gun to take control of her.

Jamroz tied her wrists, knees and ankles with duct tape, and forced her to perform a sex act on him before locking her inside the wooden box.

He used screws to lock the box so that the woman could not escape. He also forced the woman to send her mother and another man a text message, saying that she was going to be away for a few days.

Authorities arrested Jamroz the next day, after the woman managed to break the box and forced herself out when he was not around.

She then used a hammer to open a lock on the basement door and she escape from the home.

Jamroz was charged with three felonies, including kidnapping, second-degree sexual assault and false imprisonment. He is being held on $30,000 bail.

Police did not release the age if the victim.
