COPLEY, OH (WOIO) - A 15-year-old boy escapes after being raped by a Barberton man in a motel room.
Officers say the teen and 51-year-old suspect, identified as John Quinlan, arranged a meeting via text on August 16. Police believe the teen was expecting someone closer to his own age.
Quinlan allegedly picked up the teen and drove him to a Rothrock Road motel in Copley. Police believe the teen was held against his will in the room.
The victim managed to escape the room and break out a window in Quinlan's car to grab his cell phone.
Quinlan fled the area. When officers arrived to check the window breaking complaint, they found the teenage victim.
Quinlan turned himself in the next day. He's charged with kidnapping and rape.
Quinlan is out on bond until his next court date.
