Talk about a no win situation, an altogether lose-lose scenario.
Two drug dealers on Staten Island allegedly kidnapped and pummeled a deadbeat, then gave her two options to pay back her debt: shoplifting or prostitution.
Ex-con Ozan Williams, 31, and a cohort abducted the woman on Nov. 19 and brought her to a New Brighton drug den, where they allegedly stripped her naked, bound her to a chair and bashed her face repeatedly with the butt end of a gun, police sources said.
After pummeling her for five hours, Williams presented the victim with the repayment choices, cops said.
She chose shoplifting, and all three took a cab to the Staten Island Mall.
Once inside the Old Navy store, she told employees about her ordeal and they called cops.
The suspects fled, and she was treated for a broken nose, eye socket and jaw.
Following a two-month investigation, Ozan -- on parole for drug possession -- was busted Wednesday.
His alleged accomplice remains on the lam.
