Man accused of kidnapping California woman captured in Las Vegas, officials say

Joseph Hetzel was arrested Tuesday evening in Nevada on kidnapping and stalking charges stemming from his alleged abduction of his ex-girlfriend. He was being held in lieu of $1 million bail

Late Monday night, authorities said, he dropped off the alleged victim, Virginia Paris, 55, at a casino in Henderson and drove off. Paris and Hetzel were last spotted together at a Starbucks in Arizona, when she told a customer she needed help right before Hetzel allegedly forced her back into a vehicle.

A California man suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend in California was arrested Tuesday night in Henderson, Nevada, reports CBS Las Vegas affiliate KLAS-TV. Henderson police said that she had been abducted.

Paris, 55, was taken to a hospital where she was treated and released.

Paris' vehicle was found early this morning abandoned in Mesquite, Nevada, the sheriff's office said.

Shortly before 9 p.m. on September 4, Paris made two calls to a family member.

Paris was allegedly kidnapped by Hetzel shortly after she left work Friday in Solvang, California, the sheriff's office said.

According to the SBCSO, kidnapping suspect Joseph Hetzel, 52, dropped Paris off at the Railroad Pass Casino and Hotel and drove away.

After her rescue, Paris told investigators Hetzel had said he was going to Utah.

Hertzel and Paris were also spotted twice in Arizona in the past week.

There, according to investigators, Paris ordered a drink and gave her name.

Deputies added that Hetzel apparently saw this so he grabbed her and dragged her out of the shop.

They were seen Sunday at a Starbucks in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear, where Paris approached a customer and said she needed help. He then allegedly kicked her into the vehicle and sped off.

The two were seen the following morning checking out of the Grand Canyon Inn in Valle, Ariz., officials said.

Authorities released surveillance photos of Hetzel and Paris checking out of the hotel and they appeared to show Paris continuing to be held against her will, KLAs notes.

SBCSO detectives are heading to Nevada to meet with Paris and to provide services. She is now safe and with her family.

The move could give South Korea more independence from the United States to react to the threat from North Korea, analysts say. The Russian Foreign Ministry said North Korea's claim to have tested a hydrogen bomb "deserves the strongest condemnation".

SBCSO deputies said they are working closely with authorities in Nevada, Arizona and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
