German police have arrested a family of three on charges of keeping a young woman as a slave.

The mother, father and son are accused of holding the 20-year-old alleged victim for up to a year in the south-western town of Hassmersheim.

Police say the woman managed to escape through an open window.

“During the entire time, the victim was repeatedly abused, humiliated and threatened,” prosecutors in the city of Mosbach said.
