Man Charged With Abducting 16-Year-Old Girl in Va.

A 21-year-old man is facing an abduction charge after police say he forced a 16-year-old girl into his car against her will after the two fought at a party. 

Roberto Medrano Segovia has been charged with abduction, gang participation, destruction of property and providing a false name to law enforcement.

Segovia and the victim were at a party on Danville Road early Sunday morning when they got into an argument that turned physical. Other people at the party helped the victim, and the two were separated

At that point, police say Segovia pulled out a knife and claimed to be a member of the gang MS-13. Segovia left the home, but returned a short time later with other people, according to police. 

He then allegedly used a sharp item to deflate three tires on a vehicle belonging to one of the people who helped the victim. 

Witnesses told police they saw Segovia force the victim into his car, seemingly  against her will.

An Amber Alert was issued for the teen, and police soon learned the two were at a home on Barksdale Street in Woodbridge. 

A man and woman at the home gave officers fake names, but they were quickly identified and questioned about the incident. 

Police say the teen was located unharmed and returned to her family. 

Segovia was arrested and is being held without bond.
