Aldorasi was arrested by the FBI’s Seattle Field Office on Feb. 24, 2017, in SeaTac, Washington, on a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. He made his first appearance on Feb. 27, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. He was ordered detained there pending a hearing set for March 2, 2017.

The indictment today was returned by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The charge of kidnapping carries a statutory maximum of life in prison.

According to the complaint, the victim reported that he was abducted on the afternoon of Jan. 26, 2017, from the 3400 block of O Street NW.
