(Scroll down for video) A student in Missouri, hatched an elaborate plan to kidnap his friend’s sister so he can rape her.
17-year-old John Thomas Classen admitted to police that he was obsessed with his friend’s 10-year-old sister and that he stalked her before kidnapping her.
Classen said that he was “in love” with the girl, and he planned to suffocate her and “raper her dead body” before fleeing the city, according to police.
Classen began his kidnapping plan by unlocking a basement window of the victim’s home while visiting his friend.
The next day, he entered the basement through the window and waited there for about 4 hours before setting his plan in motion.
Classen went upstairs and kidnapped the 10-year-old girl, who was sleeping on the couch. The girl attempted to fight him.
The two fell to the ground and the girl hurt her ankle. He then dragged her into his car and drove off.
His plan was intercepted on a road about half a mile away after the girl’s mother realized that she was missing.
Police set up roadblocks in O’Fallon, and found the victim inside Classen’s car.
The girl had bruises and hurt her ankle, but other then that she was unharmed.
Classen was charged with kidnapping, burglary and two counts of child abuse. His bail was set at $1.5 million.
