    PA - Lirim Rufati for kidnapping, abusing wife, West Goshen, 2013


    A Pennsylvania college student was arrested after police said he physically and sexually abused his wife for a year and then kidnapped her in an attempt to force her to leave the country.
    Police said the investigation began after the victimís friend called 911 and claimed Lirim Rufati, 24, of West Chester, had kidnapped his wife and taken her to JFK airport in New York.

    The caller claimed the woman was being forced to leave the country against her will by her husband and father-in-law.
    It appears to have been an arranged marriage in Macedonia. He was going to send her back as "punishment". He is now in jail with a bail set at $250,000.

    Rufati reportedly watched to make sure his wife checked-in at the airport but once she was out of sight she was able to contact police, who arranged for her to be picked up by a friend and driven home.

    The friend called 911 after the incident and told authorities that Rufati was attempting to force his wife to leave the country against her will.

    Updated to include his sentencing and statements made during court hearing. He was studying criminal justice at a nearby college when arrested!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
