RAVENNA, OH (WOIO) - A Kent State University football player has been accused of kidnapping.
A criminal complaint was filed last week against senior Nate Holley.
According to court records, the kidnapping complaint was filed after the Nov. 3 incident where Holley reportedly, "did by force threat or deception or in the case of a victim under the age of thirteen or mentally incompetent, by any means, did restrain another of her liberty."
The incident happened in Franklin Township in Portage County. That is northeast of Kent.
Holley reported to Ravenna Municipal Court on Monday and was released on $50,000 bond to the Oriana House and placed on a GPS device. He was ordered to have no contact with the victim.
Kent State University released a statement late Monday: "We are aware of the situation and take this matter very seriously. He has been suspended from the team indefinitely."
Holley is the safety on the team and boasts 401 career tackles. He was an two-time All-MAC first team selection the last two seasons.
He is from Toledo, where he attended Whitmer High School.
"I feel really safe at Kent, but I guess you never really think that anything bad will happen until it happens," said student Lizzie Carter.
