BUFFALO, N.Y., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Police say a Buffalo, N.Y., man kept a 13-year-old girl prisoner in his home for nearly six months, raping her more than 100 times.

Michael Abdallah, 26, was charged Friday with second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and custodial interference, the Buffalo News reported.

Authorities allege Abdallah kept the runaway girl locked up inside his apartment, which reportedly had no doorknobs and which could only be opened by using a key to two dead-bolt locks, the newspaper said.

Police said Abdallah also forced the alleged victim to baby-sit his 1-year-old son.

The News quoted police reports as alleging Abdallah began having sex with girl more than a year ago, before she was allegedly kidnapped and held from July through December.
