SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man is behind bars, after allegedly abducting a woman from a bar parking lot. Salisbury Police say that a 20-year-old woman, was rejected from Brew River, on W. Main Street, for being too young, and called a cab to go home. While the woman was waiting for her taxi, a vehicle reportedly pulled up, and asked if she called a cab, and needed a ride. The woman tells police that she thought it was her taxi, so she got into the car and gave the driver her address.
According to Police, the suspect drove past the woman's house, and told her that he was taking her somewhere else. The woman said she told him to take her home, and he refused. Police say that the suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Adene Bekele, took the victim to his home on West Church Street, where once inside, he reportedly forced her a knife-point to smoke from a Hookah device.
The victim was able to leave the apartment and call Police after Bekele left her alone in the apartment. The victim had minor injuries, but didn't need medical attention.
Police canvassed the area where they found the Bekele's vehicle and apartment. They searched the home and collected evidence. Bekele was arrested, and charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, 1st and 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment, and wear & carry a deadly weapon. He was later released to the custody of central booking.
