Couple Allegedly Kidnapped 18-Year-Old, Forced Her To Eat Cat Feces, Officials Say


An Australian couple have been denied bail over an alleged kidnapping, during which they are accused of torturing their 18-year-old victim and forcing her to eat cat feces.

According to NYPOST, Mataja Pagett, 18, from western Sydney, and Jayden Williamson, 21, from Wollongong, are facing charges of taking and detaining a victim with intent, assault causing actual bodily harm in company, and stalking intimidation in connection with an alleged kidnapping incident.

A third co-accused, Christopher Diliapis, a 19-year-old from Dapto, has also been charged but was granted bail.

The alleged incident occurred on August 30, during which Pagett, Williamson, and Diliapis allegedly detained the victim at a unit in North Wollongong between 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The magistrate also noted that the alleged offenses appeared to be premeditated based on the available evidence in the unit.

Williamson and Pagett will remain in custody, with their cases scheduled to return to Wollongong Local Court on November 1.
