The headline should read "Kidnapped at gunpoint at College of Marin". That is where the victim was abducted. People in the area need to be more aware.

The victim was kidnapped from the college, however, reports say he was assaulted in the Tam Valley area. Which means this is where the suspect was last seen. But yes, I agree, people in all of the areas need to be aware.
