Bowling Green Police are searching for a fourth suspect in connection with the kidnapping and robbery of a Chinese University of Toledo student.
19-year-old Nicholas Martinez is wanted on robbery and kidnapping charges. Police said Martinez along with three others lured the student through an online forum with a promise of an Aug. 18 trip to Cedar Point. Instead, authorities said they took him to a home in Bowling Green and robbed him.
Three other suspects have already been arrested.
Blake Long, 21, of Toledo turned himself in to authorities Thursday after a warrant was out for his arrest earlier that day. Long is the sibling of another suspect, Brittany Long, 20, whom investigators claim drove the vehicle during the kidnapping. Long turned herself in last week and was released on her own recognizance at her court hearing Wednesday.
Earlier this week, the second female suspect, Hui Zhang, 23, turned herself into authorities hours after her warrant was issued Monday. The victim told police Zhang identified herself as a second kidnapping victim, but investigators determined she posed as a student on a Chinese online site to set up the kidnapping and robbery.
Martinez is considered to be armed and dangerous. If you know of his whereabouts you are asked to contact your local law enforcement agency.
