That was how he met these sisters, lured by the offer agreed to a “casting” in the man’s house.
Once there, the girls could not get out and have been abused by the fake producer, the parents said.
“He forced them to be with him,” said the mother, and also claimed that the son of the assailant, an 18 year old young man, was involved in the abuse.
