Texas man sexually tortured for days in small Nebraska town
Fri Jan 18 2002 11:39:56 ET

A Texas man was sexually tortured and held against his will for nine days inside a downtown flower shop by its owner in Wayne, Nebraska, it was reported on Friday.

Business owner Roger Van, 55, is accused of luring 36-year-old Jonathan Cooper of Houston to the small college town last month via the Internet to begin a "sadistic bondage" relationship.


Their relationship included various forms of sex and torture. Authorities would not elaborate. Another man, 36-year-old Jerry Marshall, also participated, said police.

Van and Marshall were charged Thursday with sexual assault, two counts of assault, false imprisonment and terroristic threats after a search warrant was delivered at Van's flower shop.

Marshall helped Cooper escape after nine days in confinement, the AP reported.

Wayne, a community of 5,583 people, is 85 miles northwest of Omaha in northeast Nebraska.
