Man locks prostitute in apartment, she stabs him
A Framingham man was charged with kidnapping a Dorchester prostitute on Monday when he locked her in his apartment to keep her from leaving, while she is charged with stabbing him to escape, according to police.
Both Oleg Yeliseyev, 69, and Kasandra Combs, 21, were arrested when he chased her from his 1550 Worcester Road apartment onto Rte. 9 after the 8 p.m. incident, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
Police received several 911 calls from both the apartment building and people driving on Rte. 9 a little after 8 p.m. When they got there, they found Combs standing behind the guard rail on Rte. 9 west, while Yeliseyev, who had blood on his clothing, standing near his car, which was parked near the woman.
``She was crying and she said she had stabbed the guy (Yeliseyev) with a knife,'' Shastany said.
Combs said she was a prostitute and had been picked up by Yeliseyev three times in the past. He picked her up Monday and brought her to his apartment in Framingham, where they had sex.
At one point, she used his phone to call her 2-year-old daughter. When she hung up, Combs said Yeliseyev became angry.
``He accused her of calling some male friends to come and rob him,'' said Shastany. ``She became frightened and tried to leave, but he wouldn't let her.''
The two fought in front of his apartment door, with Yeliseyev refusing to leave. Combs told police she had a knife and she took it out of her purse and stabbed him in the arm and ran out, with him in pursuit.
Yeliseyev said he picked up the woman in Dorchester to have sex with her. He said he had met her at a CVS previously and had bought her food, Shastany said. He claimed he did not know Combs was a prostitute.
Yeliseyev said the pair had sex. Afterward, he noticed a dress he had laid out on a bed was missing and he accused her of taking it. Police do not know what the dress was for.
``She tried to leave, and he said he locked the door so she couldn't leave,'' said Shastany. ``He said when she pulled out the knife, she realized she was a prostitute.''
After he was stabbed in the arm, Yeliseyev said he knocked the knife away from Combs, and she got out of the apartment and he chased her.
Both Yeliseyev and Combs were arrested.
Yeliseyev's stab wound was minor and was treated by paramedics, Shastany said.
Yeliseyev was charged with kidnapping by confinement, assault and battery and offering money for sex.
Combs, of 11 Wyoming St., was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, prostitution and the illegal possession of methadone.
Shastany said officers found the methadone in her purse.
Both pleaded not guilty at their Framingham District Court arraignments yesterday. Combs was released without bail, while Yeliseyev was released after he posted $1,500 bail.
Both are due back in court on Feb. 8 for a pretrial conference.
