A Florida couple described as ‘doomsday preppers’ face sexual and physical abuse charges after allegedly keeping two women as slaves on their farm.
Mirko Ceska, 58, and Regina Ceska, 55, were arrested by Wakulla County Sheriff’s Officers at their property in Crawfordville on Friday.
They were charged after two females allegedly fled their custody and told police on June 28 about the abuses they suffered while held captive.
The victims described a variety of punishments the couple allegedly inflicted upon them, including beatings, restricting their food intake and verbal abuse.
The most recent physical attack was carried out with a metal rod, according to a police statement.
Detective noted one of the females had marks and bruises on her back and arm.
Both women also told police that Mirko would ‘force sex acts upon them, some with the support of Regina Ceska.’
The names, ages and nationalities of the victims have not been revealed by police so far, nor has their relationship to the Ceskas’ other than them being under the couple’s legal custody.
They described the couple as ‘doomsday preppers’ with getaway properties located throughout America that contained food rations and weapons in ‘the event of a major calamity.’
After raiding the couple’s property on Lonnie Raker Lane, detectives seized dozens of ‘high quality firearms’ and numerous cases of ammunition.
‘Some of the firearms were hidden behind false walls or a staircase,’ the police statement read. They also found large quantities of food supplies and survivalist items.
A homemade video was reportedly recovered that showed Mirko screaming very closely to the faces of the two women for ‘stealing food.’
Detectives also found a ‘file containing an internet search history for an incestuous video’ on Mirko’s phone.
