Zanesville man charged in abduction of teenager
(2007-04-20)
(WOUB) - A Zanesville man is facing several felony charges including kidnapping and rape in connection with the abduction of a 14-month old girl last month.

Zanesville police say 44-year old Randy Dillion took Miah Beatty from her home on March 13. The girl was found in a ditch about 10 miles away nearly eight hours after her mother woke up and discovered she was missing.

Dillon is charged with attempted murder, rape, kidnapping, burglary and gross sexual imposition -- all felonies. Police say he is an acquaintance of the girl's family. He has been in the Zanesville city jail since the morning of her abduction, after he was arrested on a misdemeanor warrant out of the Zanesville Municipal Court.

Police say the incident is still under investigation and they do not plan to release any other details.
