A 38-year-old Swedish doctor is accused of kidnapping and raping a woman in a purpose built underground sex lair.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was held captive for six days after being drugged by her kidnapper with chocolate-dipped strawberries laced with Rohypnol.

The doctor is accused of strapping the woman into a wheelchair before driving her over 300 miles to his dungeon last year.

Upon arriving at the farm property, he locked the woman in the prison-like bunker where he repeatedly raped her during six days in captivity.

Reports claim that the doctor’s disturbing plan was to hold his victim captive in the farm bunker for a number of years.

Police found a prosthetic mask, used to disguise the victim as an elderly lady, along with another mask of a bearded man when they raided the 38-year-old’s home outside Kristianstad, southern Sweden, after his arrest last September.

Drug-laced strawberries, used condoms, syringes and a gun were also found in the bunker, which was built by the doctor five year ago.

Its concrete walls were 32cm thick and it included double doors for security and several locks.

The doctor drove the victim back to her flat in Stockholm after the six-day ordeal, to discover that she had been reported missing.

It is believed he panicked and brought the woman to a Stockholm police station where she managed to tell detectives everything.

He told her to tell police she was fine, but they became suspicious about her behaviour and questioned her further.

She revealed what had allegedly happened and the suspect was arrested that day.

The prosecutor reportedly said the woman was abducted from her house in central Stockholm and taken south to the farm, which is surrounded by dense forest.

The man has admitted kidnapping and imprisoning the victim, but denies raping her, Aftonbladet reports.

The attack is reminiscent of the atrocious crimes of Josef Fritzl, who locked his daughter in a cellar in Austria for decades.
