38-year-old Martin Trenneborg is accused of drugging, kidnapping and repeatedly raping his victim in an underground purpose built lair. Twisted doctor kept kidnapped woman in rape bunker

This is the first picture of the doctor, dubbed "Sweden's Josef Fritzl", who stands accused of raping a woman for six days in an underground dungeon.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was held captive for almost a week after being drugged by Trenneborg with chocolate-dipped strawberries laced with Rohypnol.

He is accused of strapping the woman into a wheelchair before driving her over 300 miles to his lair 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.

It is thought 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.

According to a further police report, Trenneborg also possessed a mask of an old man so that he could switch disguises to ensure he was not caught.

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 sadistic lair also allegedly contained a bedroom, a functioning toilet and a working kitchen.

Stunningly, the property is thought to have a covered courtyard where someone could go outside without being spotted by neighbours.

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

Due to the strong police presence, it is believed he panicked and brought the woman to a Stockholm police station where she managed to tell detectives everything.

Trenneborg had threatened his victim to give a phony story to the authorities, but they became suspicious about her behaviour and questioned her further.

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

He has admitted kidnapping and imprisoning the victim, but denies raping her.

Chief prosecutor Peter Claeson said: "We believe his intention has been to keep the woman locked up for several years.

"We also suspect him of planning this for years.

"Among other things, he has built the bunker to bring one or more victims."
