A criminal complaint filed in federal court in Seattle says the suspect abducted the victim near the school's campus Jan. 26 and drove him to four banks, a Best Buy and a Cartier store in Maryland. Police say the transactions were all declined before the suspect eventually fled in his vehicle. The victim wasn't hurt.
