Ethiopia: Man found guilty of kidnapping woman

Man found guilty of kidnapping woman


SALISBURY — The 25-year-old man who abducted a woman from Brew River in February was found guilty by a Wicomico County jury Thursday.

Adene H. Bekele, of Salisbury, was found guilty of kidnapping, second-degree assault, false imprisonment and wearing a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure.

Bekele abducted the 20-year-old woman while posing as a cab driver on Feb. 1. He drove past the woman’s house without stopping, taking her to an apartment on West Main Street instead.

Bekele brought the victim to a bedroom and put an item — the victim thinks it was a folding knife she had seen — to her throat.

"The subject demanded that (the victim) smoke from the hookah while holding the object to (the victim's) throat," state court documents.

When he left the bedroom door open, the woman was able to escape and call 911.

Pending a sentencing hearing, Bekele will be held without bond.

A very weird case. If you look at it in a legal view point, there is nothing which indicates how the lady ended up in his bedroom. Did he carried her, pushed her, or she just voluntarily followed him. There is only one claim of her being forced to smoke a hooka in the bedroom. Other than that this case should be dead on arrival, not alone to convict him for abduction. How did he let open the bedroom door if for sure he had kidnapped her?
I smell something fishy here.
If the guy is not driving a taxi, how did she think it was a taxi cab first of all, and took the ride?

@Addis Zemen,

Yes, but the victim was a minor (complete story), so even if it was a prostitution thing, it ends up being kidnap and rape case.

Moral of the story,…

Not really, she is a 20 years old woman, and there is nothing which indicates that she was a minor.
The only thing he should be guilty of is, his foolishness.
As you well put it, this case is a business got out of deal. He didn’t want to pay for the service, and instead tried to invite her hookha.
I wish we heard something from him, if he had tried to defend himself.
Nothing on the story makes sense.
It is like she was hypnotized and woke up in his bedroom out of nowhere.
He lives in an apartment building not a secluded bungalow in the woods. There must be pushing and shoving which could attract the neighbors, if he for sure forced her to his apt.

From information above, I cannot understand why he is accused of “kidnapping".

Didn’t she have the opportunity to escape while they were walkign to the apartment? Or did he drive into & park his “fake” cab right inside the apartment, an impossibility. Remember he brandished he “knife” only inside the apartment.

To Nazret Editors,

I know you’re busy but try to look for newssources that have as much pertinent information as possible so that we get a better picture.

This is news was written by an unsupervised intern. that is my half-ass informed guess.
