Pair Arrested After Woman Kidnapped, Held for Days and Raped: BSO

A man and woman are facing charges after a woman was held for days in a North Lauderdale home where she was raped and sexually assaulted, authorities said.

Brandon Phillip Forbes, 34, was arrested Jan. 23 for kidnapping, sexual assault and battery, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest report. Raiza Rosado, 23, was arrested and charged with kidnapping, the report said.

Forbes was being held on $35,000 bond Monday, while Rosado was being held without bond, jail records showed. It's unknown if they've hired attorneys.

According to the report, Forbes and Rosado met the 33-year-old victim on Jan. 16 at a Miami beach. Rosado had approached the victim and invited her to come home with her and Forbes, the report said.

The victim went with them and spent the night at their home. The next day, Rosado told her that she and Forbes meet people and commit robberies, the report said.

When the victim tried to leave the home Forbes approached and "aggressively told her not to leave," the report said. The victims legs and hands were later bound together, the report said.

The next day, Forbes tried to have sex with the victim while Rosado was asleep, but stopped when a condom broke, the report said. When he told Rosado he had sex with the victim, it caused an argument, and both suspects attacked the victim, hitting her multiple times, the report said. Forbes and Rosado put a sock in the woman's mouth and covered her head with a black sheet, the report said.

On another occasion, Forbes forced the victim to perform oral sex on him before he raped her, the report said. The victim said she thought he had a firearm and at one point she heard Rosado say "want me to get the silencer," the report said.

After the woman was held in captivity for five days, Rosado finally brought her to a train station on Jan. 22 and let her leave, the report said. The victim then contacted police.

That same day, police responded to a domestic disturbance at the home for a verbal argument between Forbes and Rosado, the report said.

According to the report, Rosado called 911 and reported that a female was being held hostage and that Forbes was having "relations" with her. Rosado said Forbes was beating the victim and there was "blood all over the floor," the report said.

When officers arrived at the home the victim wasn't there but the officers found a firearm that was thrown out of a back window, the report said.

The victim later identified both suspects in a double blind photo array, the report said.
