NANTICOKE, Pa. (WHTM) – Troopers in Luzerne County say deadly force was used against an alleged abductor.
Jordan Oliver, 20, allegedly held 15-year-old Samara Derwin in a wooded area in Hanover Township after stealing a police vehicle in Nanticoke.
Police say Oliver initially held the teen at knifepoint Sunday afternoon at Nanticoke High School. She escaped and was placed in a Nanticoke police cruiser as officers tried to arrest Oliver, but Oliver sprayed mace during a struggle and fled with the marked cruiser and girl.
An Amber Alert issued Sunday has been canceled.
