Dragan Jovanovic, 42, and Elvis Tahirovic, 18, were arrested this week in a bizarre kidnapping conspiracy: they drove from Fargo, North Dakota to Bowling Green to kidnap a 14-year-old girl so that she could marry Jovanovic’s 14-year-old son (who met her on the Internet).
The two men tried to sign out the girl from her school, Henry Moss Middle School, when the principal intervened (thankfully) and stopped them after noting that they were not relatives. They were later arrested at the Dollar General store across the street and have been charged with attempted kidnapping of a minor. It is an interesting charge since it turns out the girl was absent from school that day. Moreover, it appears that the girl agreed to the scheme. However, legally they still attempted to carry out the act and removing a minor under such circumstances would still qualify as kidnapping in Kentucky.
The boy and his sister accompanied the men to Ohio.
It is astonishing that these men could think that they could get away with such an act.
