Bricking It

A teenager has become a prisoner in her own home after photos appeared on the Internet in which she offered sex in return for bricks to build a house.

The online ad shows the 19-year-old from Slovakia dressed in school uniform and reads: "Hi, I offer sex for assistance in building a house- for building materials I offer anal and oral."

The ad also gives her phone number and full family address in Kosice.

Now, the girl Stanka Banek, says she has been inundated with phone calls from men wanting to take up the offer.

"It’s been a nightmare. I’ve had over 300 calls from men leaving revolting messages.

"I don’t know how or why my photos have been put on this site, but I called the police as soon as I found out about it.

"But although the advert has been taken down, I’m still getting phone calls and some men are even threatening me.

"Some have said they know where I live and will get me - I’m too scared to even leave now," the terrified teenager said.

Website spokesman Radim Smicka said: "This is clearly a case of stalking, which is a criminal offence.

"We removed the offending advert within an hour of it going online."

Police spokesman Aleksander Szabo said: "There are a couple of offences we are looking at here - namely slander and threatening behaviour."
