Ex-judge held hostage in hotel room for ransom ‘after threesome with escorts’

A former judge has been released after he was held hostage in his own hotel room in Brazil after "hiring escorts for a threesome".

The retired magistrate, who wasn't named in reports, was taken hostage on Monday (11 July) in the apartment he was renting in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, after hiring two escorts for sex that morning.

After he was done with the women's services, he sent them away in an Uber but received a knock on the door later that afternoon, he later told police.

The former judge looked through the peephole to see the same two women he had hired standing outside his flat.

However, upon opening the door he was horrified to realise they were accompanied by two men, one armed with a handgun, who claimed to be cops arresting him for soliciting prostitution.

Instead of taking him into custody, one of the men marched the man to an ATM – but the cash he was told to withdraw apparently wasn't enough to satisfy his captors after all.

His tormentors then called one of his friends back home, demanding a whopping BRL 200,000 (£30,900) to secure his release.

When she was unable to pay, he asked her to give him the cash in instalments.

Fortunately Brazilian cops picked up on the situation as it was unravelling and were able to arrest one of the men, freeing the American hostage just hours after the initial run-in.

The man told police he had been going to Brazil for 20 years and had met with the women several times before on other trips.

The man they arrested was identified by police as Erivaldo Juvino Silva, known in criminal circles as 'Nem da Malvina', who headed a militia in the Jacarepagua neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, home to the infamous Cidade de Deus (City of God) slum.

Police are now on the hunt for co-conspirators in the hostage-taking.
