A woman wanted in connection to a kidnapping that started in Toledo on Sunday and continued with a reported robbery later in the day in Bowling Green was arrested Monday night.
Brittany Long, 20, Toledo, was taken into custody by Bowling Green Police in Toledo after she surrendered.
"It was arranged through her attorney that she turned herself in to us in, I believe, her father's house" in Toledo, said Maj. Tony Hetrick of the BG Police Division this morning. She surrendered without incident.
Long is being held without bail in the Wood County jail on charges of kidnapping and aggravated robbery. She was to be arraigned via video in Bowling Green Municipal Court today.
Hetrick said that police have not yet had a chance to question Long.
Long is accused of being a part of a robbery scheme which began Saturday.
At that time, a 20-year-old Chinese national studying at the University of Toledo was contacted via an online chatroom about a trip to Cedar Point the next day.
He agreed to go along and was reportedly picked up by Long, a white male, and an Asian female at his Toledo residence. A black male was later picked up and the group then traveled to Bowling Green.
The man was then taken to a vacant house on Palmer Avenue and robbed at knife-point. He was later taken to an EconoLodge Motel in Holland, where those involved held him and attempted to make ransom demands to his family via telephone, but were unsuccessful.
The man was later released Sunday evening and told that if he went to the police, he would be killed.
The Asian female in the car reportedly said that she was also abducted, but her identity, whereabouts and how she was involved in the incident remain unknown.
