VARINA, Va. (AP) -- A Richmond-area high school student is accused of abducting another teen at gunpoint from the school's parking lot.
Media outlets reported Tuesday that 18-year-old Austin Martin was arrested Monday and is facing abduction and gun charges.
Police say Martin was trying to speak to the 16-year-old girl in the parking lot of Varina High School around 8:45 a.m. Monday. When she refused, police say Martin pulled out a gun, forced her into the car and drove her to a nearby home. She escaped a few hours later, and police caught Martin as he ran out of the home after the girl.
Police say there was no threat to any other students or school personnel.
