Man charged with kidnapping for allegedly keeping woman locked in trailer for 4 years


A man who prosecutors say held a woman captive for four years in a trailer in Houston has been charged with kidnapping, court records show.

Abraham Bravo Segura, 42, was arrested Wednesday night and remained in a Harris County jail on $150,000 bond Friday morning, pending a hearing later that day, jail records show.

During an initial court appearance on Thursday, video of the hearing obtained by CNN affiliate KTRK shows a prosecutor explaining the allegations against Segura.

“The defendant had kept the plaintiff in a trailer for about four years,” the prosecutor said.

CNN has requested comment from the Harris County Public Defender’s Office.

KTRK reports that the victim was able to call using a phone inside the mobile home while Segura was at work and told Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies that he held her under the threat of a gun, threatened to kill her and that she could not escape.

According to KTRK, firefighters had to use power tools to cut the window bars off the trailer to rescue the victim on Wednesday after the bolt cutters failed on the padlock.
