A North Las Vegas man has been indicted in the brutal beatings of a prostitute.

Twenty-eight-year-old Robert Sharpe III was indicted Friday on 17 counts, including kidnapping, assault and sex trafficking.

A prosecutor told KLAS-TV it was “one of the most brutal and depraved cases” he has ever seen.

The woman lost a finger and parts of her buttocks after the beatings that she said took place over the eight weeks she was held by him to work as a prostitute.

She also underwent 12 surgeries for injuries.

The woman told police she was beaten with a metal pole, burned with an iron and had lemon juice and Tabasco sauce poured into her open wounds.

The woman was found June 30 near a Las Vegas hospital.
