I looked around for a thread on this and didn't see one: http://www.13wham.com/news/local/st...empted-Kidnapping/P72795uDd06NhWj_-SJcNw.cspx "THURSTON, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they've charged a 29-year-old man with kidnapping and assaulting a woman as she jogged along a rural road in New York's Southern Tier." snip "Police say they tracked down leads on the truck and later arrested Jason Strauss of the town of Bath. He's being held in the county jail on $100,000 bail." (more at link) ----------- http://rochester.ynn.com/content/top_stories/669473/bath-man-charged-with-kidnapping-and-assault/ "Investigators say the victim was jogging on County Route 3 in Thurston when she was approached by Strauss in a truck asking for directions. That's when deputies say Strauss got out of his truck and forced the woman into his vehicle. When the woman fought back and got out, police say Strauss backed his truck into her, knocking her into a ditch. She ran to a nearby house and called 911."

Strauss was arraigned just after 10 p.m. Friday night. Hes in the Steuben County Jail on $100,000 cash bail/$200,000 property bail. The investigation continues, and more charges are pending." (much more at link) ---------- Quite disturbing, IMO. Makes me wonder if this person has ever done anything like this before. Perhaps similar unsolved cases in NY ought to be revisited.
