Three women were rescued from a house in south London on Thursday morning, and police said they had been enslaved and held captive there for 30 years.
Two suspects, a man and a woman, both 67, were arrested in the investigation, the Guardian reports.
The victims — a 69-year-old Malaysian woman, a 57-year-old Irish woman, and a 30-year-old British woman — are suspected to have suffered physical and psychological abuse and lived in fear of the suspects. A television documentary on forced marriage prompted one of the victims to call for help, a detective said.
