A British model was held captive for a week while a man threatened to sell her on pornographic sites hosted on the Dark Web, according to Italian police.
Police are now working to identify Herba's accomplices and established what happened to the woman while she was help captive.
A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We have been providing consular support to a British woman in Italy and are in touch with local authorities".
On July 17, for reasons that are not clear, Herba drove the woman back to Milan and released her close to the British Consulate, where he was arrested.
The woman was then kept handcuffed to a wooden chest of drawers in a bedroom for six days until she was released. Reports in Italy say Herba told officers he had sex with the model but it is unclear whether it was consensual and police are still investigating the claim.
