"We are alleging, the police are alleging that he tied her up threatening to do all kinds of really frightening things to her," stated Murphy, "Very scary. She was able to convince him that she would get back together with him."

She was able to get away, after which Place then allegedly stole her car. Police were able to locate him a short time later due to the fact he was wearing an ankle braclet because of prior arrests. Murphy would not comment what those prior arrests were, however Place is a registered sex offender in New York State stemming from a violent crime in Saratoga County against a 14-year-old female in 2004. 

Place has been charged with Kidnapping 2nd, Attempted Kidnapping 2nd, Assault 2nd, all violent felonies, Assault 3rd, Grand Larceny 4th, two charges of Petit Larceny, Attempted Assault, Harassment 2nd, and two charges of Aggravated Harassment.
