Sheriff: Rochester man charged with kidnapping near FLCC campus

Ontario County Sheriff Kevin Henderson says a person was abducted near the Finger Lakes Community College campus on Friday and held against their will for hours.

Now, an 18-year-old has been arrested in connection with that investigation.

Joshua Lyons, of Rochester, was charged with second-degree kidnapping on Sunday after the incident on Friday.



Henderson says Lyons abducted an individual, held them against their will for hours, before releasing them in the Town of Greece.

Deputies later located Lyons and arrested him. He was taken into custody and held pending arraignment.

Henderson says there is no danger to the public and the two individuals were known to each other.
