NY man pleads guilty to coercion, faces prison
QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — An upstate New York man accused of abducting a woman and her 3-year-old daughter at knifepoint will spend up to seven years in prison.
Prosecutors say 22-year-old Miguel Medrano-Garcia has pleaded guilty to a count of coercion.
According to The Post-Star , police say the man abducted the woman and her child in March and took them to a motel in Queensbury, where the woman called 911.
Authorities say Medrano-Garcia held a knife to the child’s face and neck and locked himself in a car with her. He surrendered after a standoff with police.
No serious injuries were reported.
