Suspect accused in being involved in kidnapping of UT student turns himself in


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

Blake Lee Quentin Long, 21, of Toledo, turned himself in today after police issued a warrant for him. They are still seeking 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 a group of 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 police said 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 dropped the student off unharmed near his Toledo residence.

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

Police said Mr. Martinez is black, stands five feet, 11 inches tall, and weighs 180 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
