An FBI agent recommended a Naples man be arrested on a federal charge of kidnapping for allegedly holding a Florida woman prisoner in his home for nearly three weeks.
A sworn affidavit by the agent alleges that Brandon Todd, born in 1993, cornered the woman on a bus trip from Florida to San Diego back in April.
Through constant threats to her and her family, Todd allegedly forced the woman onto a bus to Rochester and eventually to his grandparents' home in Ontario County.
The woman told the FBI that she was raped by Todd and was rarely let out of his room. However, she never pressed charges, later saying it was because Todd claimed he was an informant for the FBI.
The federal agent stated Todd had actually contacted him at the same time the girl was held captive, wanting to provide information on people involved in human trafficking. The agent claimed Todd said he had developed feelings for a girl he had recruited.
The affidavit says the woman faked an asthma attack in mid-May to get to Davenport Hospital in Bath, where she was able to escape her alleged captor.
An arrest warrant says Todd was arrested July 10.
