A man who reportedly kept a 17-year-old woman as a sex slave in a dog's cage and was on the run for 12 days was finally detained in Guiyang, capital of southwest China's Guizhou Province, yesterday morning.

The suspect, surnamed Chen, 44, used fake identities as he made his way through Guangxi, Guangdong and Guizhou after fleeing the southern city of Shenzhen.

Chen is a native of Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, police in Longgang District in Shenzhen said on its official microblog.

Media reports earlier claimed that Chen, who had studied in Japan, was released a year ago after being arrested for participating in group sex parties.

Police confirmed his criminal history, but didn't disclose any other details.

The victim, surnamed Han, said she met Chen online and flew from her hometown in Hunan Province to Shenzhen to date him on February 26.

She told police that Chen locked her up in a dog's cage in a basement of a residential complex and raped her. She managed to escape after being held for two days.

Han was found with her hands and feet bound in iron chains, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

Police discovered a 1.3-meter-high iron cage. A blanket was paved in the cage and clothes, very likely belonging to the woman, were hung on the balcony. Chen had rented the apartment.

Under the current laws, a person can be jailed for up to three years for illegal confinement without causing any injuries.
