BOWLING GREEN — One man has turned himself in and a final suspect, who Bowling Green police said also is involved in the abduction and robbery of a University of Toledo student from China, remained at large late Thursday.

Blake Lee Quentin Long, 21, of Toledo turned himself in Thursday after police issued a warrant. They still seek Nicholas Henry Martinez, 19, of Toledo.

Police believe both men were involved in the Aug. 18 kidnapping of a UT student, who got into a car with some strangers for what he thought was a trip to Cedar Point. Instead, police said, Mr. Long’s sister Brittany Long, 20, of Toledo drove to a vacant Bowling Green house, where the victim was robbed at knifepoint. After driving to a hotel and a failed attempt to extract ransom from the victim’s relatives in China, the group drop-ped off the student unharmed.

Mr. Long was booked on armed robbery and kidnapping charges. He was not being held at the jail last night. No details were available on an arraignment date.

Ms. Long and Hui Zang, 23, of Toledo have been arrested and charged with aggravated robbery and kidnapping.
