“It must have been quite a surreal scene,” Chris Matyszczyk reports for CNET.
“A woman in Louisville, Ky., claims that last Saturday she arranged a date with a man, who arrived at her door and pointed a gun at her leg,” Matyszczyk reports. “He then allegedly forced her to drive around to several stores, in order to buy cell phones in her own name, with her own money.”
Matyszczyk reports, “Somehow — it’s unclear how — her puported kidnapper, named as Victor A. Sarver Jr., 32, was sufficiently negligent to allow the unnamed woman the chance to beg an Apple Store employee for help. The staffer called store security, who then contacted the police. The woman was rescued from her ordeal, and Sarver was arrested.”
