Brandon Todd accused of keeping Florida woman as sex slave

A Florida woman used careful planning and a coded message to outwit an Ontario County man accused of kidnapping her, then keeping her as a sex slave in the home he said he shared with his grandparents, according to court documents.

Brandon Todd, 19, of Blacklock Hill Road in Naples, is charged in U.S. District Court in Rochester with interstate kidnapping. Court papers allege Todd captured a victim in San Diego in April, brought her to New York, then kept her in his bedroom at his grandparents' home until her mid-May escape in Bath.

"Under what I've been taught, ... she wasn't allowed at any time to leave my sight," Todd allegedly said to an FBI agent who asked about the imprisonment.

He is further accused of asking the FBI to help him find her after she got away, and of suing her in Steuben County Family Court over hospital bills related to her escape plan, in which she faked an asthma attack to get away from the home.

Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker said Todd has been charged with second-degree perjury, a class E felony, in the family court matter.

The details in this article come from the criminal complaint against Todd filed in U.S. District Court in Rochester.

Kidnapping

The victim said that on April 19 she took a bus from West Palm Beach, Fla. to San Diego, Calif. to see her mother, get a car and look for a job.

Todd got on the bus sometime before it reached San Diego, sat next to the woman and wouldn't leave her alone. When they got to San Diego, he suggested they get a hotel, and she agreed, hoping to call someone she knew to pick her up from the hotel.

On the way to the hotel, Todd told her he was in the Latin Kings gang and that she shouldn't try to escape, or she or her family would face retribution, according to the complaint.

After they got to the hotel, Todd took her to Walmart and bought a machete, a knife and some clothes for her to change into. They went back to the hotel, and he raped her with the machete next to the bed, according to the complaint. Todd also took her phone, broke it in three pieces and placed the pieces in different spots, saying he didn't want them to be tracked, she said.
