A Mansfield man is under arrest following a reported robbery and abduction last Friday at a Leppo Lane residence in Mansfield.

Wesley Ethel, 41, was identified as the suspect in the assault, robbery, and abduction of two victims in a vehicle. They were dropped-off in the Bellville area.

Mansfield Police secured two arrest warrants, and a search warrant for Ethel's home at 95 Leppo Lane. He was arrested without incident and taken to the Richland County Jail, and may face additional charges after the case is reviewed by prosecutors.
