In this exclusive clip from this week's episode of "Amish Mafia" (Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on Discovery), Esther Schmucker makes a horrifying revelation. Warning: this clip may be difficult to watch.

Though she doesn't name her attacker and gives limited details, the ones she does offer -- that she was tortured with a knife, locked in her house, and escaped wearing nothing but a towel -- suggest she was the victim of sexual assault.

Last year, Esther was attacked by a non-Amish boyfriend, suffering a fractured nose, face and broken teeth.
