A student at Wilson High School in northwest D.C. has been arrested and charged with kidnapping a teacher who works at the school.
The incident occurred over the weekend when the 15-year-old student and an accomplice saw the woman in Adams-Morgan. Police say the pair forced her into a car and made her withdraw money from her bank account. The woman was eventually able to escape the car in Wheaton about an hour after she was abducted.
The teacher was in Adams-Morgan because she holds a part-time job there. She suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a hospital.
The kidnapping comes after a principal at a D.C. middle school was murdered last week. Since recovering Brian Bett's stolen SUV, police are continuing to investigate, looking into his cell phone and computer records.
