FREMONT (CBS SF) — A Fremont man was charged Wednesday with kidnapping for allegedly abducting a 16-year-old girl at knifepoint from a grocery store parking lot early Monday morning.
Aron Kumar Roy, 23, who is being held in custody without bail, was scheduled to be arraigned at Alameda County Superior Court in Fremont Wednesday. He’s charged with second-degree robbery and possession of cocaine in addition to kidnapping.
According to a probable cause statement filed in court by Fremont police Officer Vivian Tung, the girl told police that Roy appeared from the back seat of her car, held a knife to her arm and told her to drive when she returned to her car after shopping at the Lucky store at the Brookvale Shopping Center in Fremont around 7 a.m. Monday.
Roy then directed the 16-year-old to make a series of turns and asked her if she was a virgin, Tung said.
Roy eventually had the girl park on Nutman Drive just south of Dominici Drive and told her to take off her clothes but she was able to bolt out of her car and run to a nearby house, where a resident let her in, locked the door and called police, according to Tung.
The girl wasn’t physically harmed but when she spoke to police she “was extremely upset” and was crying, shaking and scared, Tung said.
Investigators arrested Roy at his job as a salesman at the Best Buy store at 4820 Dublin Blvd. in Dublin, where he was helping a customer, at about 6 p.m. Monday after discovering a latent fingerprint on the girl’s car that linked him to fingerprints that were in a police database from previous arrests, Tung said.
Investigators also tracked Roy’s movements through tracking the girl’s cellphone, which he allegedly stole, she said.
After he was arrested, Roy admitted that he had been at the Lucky grocery store but said he had gotten into the wrong car by accident, according to Tung.
Roy also admitted that the cocaine found in his wallet belonged to him and that he had downloaded “rough sex porn” onto his cellphone, Tung said.
However, “Roy said that he never touched the victim and that this was an accident and that he was only trying to get out of the car,” Tung wrote.
