“The next bay opposite to me there’s a man covered in blood being restrained by officers.” A 25-year-old man from Rochester was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.
He said he was paid up to £400 a week by Ziemys, 31, who was jailed in April last year for three and a half years after being convicted of two offences of controlling prostitution for gain and seven of managing brothels.
A Kent Police spokesman added: “The victim and suspect are believed to be known to each other.
“Officers remain at the scene while they carry out enquiries.
"The suffering they were subjected to is no less than modern day slavery, something we as a police force are working tirelessly to eradicate."I would encourage anyone who suspects a brothel is being run in their community to contact us.
All reports will be investigated with the utmost sensitivity." Terms of Comments We do not actively moderate, monitor or edit contributions to the reader comments but we may intervene and take such action as we think necessary, please click here for our house rules.
