Buffalo man accused of imprisoning 13-year-old

Posted: Updated:

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A 26-year-old Buffalo man has been accused of holding a 13-year-old runaway in his house for six months, having sex with her more than 100 times and making her baby-sit his 1-year-old son.

Michael Abdallah remains jailed after being arrested Friday. He pleaded not guilty in Buffalo City Court on Saturday to second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and custodial interference.

Many questions remain about the case. Police spokesman Michael DeGeorge was unable to say Monday where the 13-year-old girl is now, or how her ordeal ended. She was held from last July to December.

A police report says Abdallah's apartment had no doorknobs, and the exit door could only be opened by using a key.

Court officials say Abdallah did not have a lawyer Saturday. He's due back in court on Thursday.
