The Algoma Township man that allegedly abducted his ex-girlfriend and tied her up will stand trial on several charges.
Andrew Cheslek, 22, was bound over to Kent County’s 17th Circuit Court last week on charges of CSC 2nd degree, unlawful imprisonment, felony firearm, and kidnapping.
Cheslek’s 23-year-old ex-girlfriend testified against him at his preliminary hearing last week September 30. She told authorities that Cheslek held her captive at his home for several hours on the morning of September 4. She said he was allegedly angry with her because she was late. She said he tied her up with zip ties, and put duct tape on her face when she tried to yell for help. He also allegedly pointed a gun at her.
Later he removed the duct tape, put her in the car, and drove to a local gas station. Police were called after the woman wandered into the store and asked for help. Cheslek grabbed her and ran out the door, but he was caught on surveillance tape and later identified. He was arrested that same day.
No hearing dates have been set yet.
