Tallahassee, FL (July 15, 2019) – Detectives arrested a Florida couple described as doomsday preppers who physically and sexually abused two victims for several years.
The couple was identified as 58-year-old Mirko Ceska and 55-year-old Regina Ceska. They allegedly had custody of the unidentified victims for several years.
Every day, the victims told officers that they were forced to wake up around 5:30 a.m. to do manual labor the entire day including growing a garden, raising livestock, shearing sheep, and using a loom. The couple allegedly kept properties across the country stocked with doomsday items such as weapons and food rations in case a disaster occurred.
Last month, the women escaped from the Crawfordville household and went to authorities. Deputies went to the home and found weapons stashed in many places of the home, including behind fake walls and staircases.
The victims were forced to stay at home, never speak with friends, and never talk to people in public. They endured many punishments including physical beatings and having food taken from them. They also experienced forced sexual episodes where Mirko had sex with them with Regina’s support.
Now, Mirko Ceska is facing a charge of sexual battery, sexual assault, abuse, and neglect. Regina faces charges of neglect and two counts of failing to report abuse.
The investigation continues.
