A Texas couple is behind bars after they allegedly abducted an 18-year-old woman, kept her chained to a bed inside their home, and raped her for weeks, authorities said per The Post

Jose Reyes, 31, and Jaqueline Macias, 29, were arrested Sunday night after the teen managed to flee their Houston home by climbing out of a window. The victim went knocking on neighbors’ doors who alerted police. 

The victim told officers that she had met the male suspect at an unspecified location almost a month ago and he’d convinced her to come to his house, Harris County Constable Mark Herman told the outlet.

“The whole script flipped almost immediately, and she was immediately held captive, tied up, and held in a room for approximately 30 days,”

Herman told a press conference.

“At some point after they basically started holding her against her will, they began sexually assaulting her and other things. Just a very, very evil thing.”

The young woman was found with marks on her hands and legs, according to Herman. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Her current condition has not been disclosed.

Reyes and Macias both face kidnapping charges, but authorities say additional charges are possible pending further investigation. Macias is being held on a $50,000 bond while Reyes was held on a $100,000 bond, reports note. 

Investigators are probing into the nature of the relationship between the victim and her attackers and whether a missing report was filed for the teen.
