York police say they have arrested a fourth suspect wanted in the armed kidnapping of a 22-year-old international student back in March.

Kyle Main, 31, of Keswick is facing nine charges, including kidnapping, forcible confinement and assault with a weapon. He is being held until his next court appearance on July 18.

On March 23, Wanzhen Lu was allegedly taken from his condo building’s parking garage by three men armed with tasers. A fourth man stayed in the suspect vehicle.

Three days later, Lu was found by a homeowner in Gravenhurst with minor injuries. He has since returned to Markham and been reunited with his family who flew to Canada from China.

Two other men, Hashim Abdullahi, 33, and Abdullahi Adan, 37, were previously charged and remain in custody. Both will be appearing again in court on July 25.

Nathan Plater, 22, was also charged with kidnapping, forcible confinement and possession of a prohibited firearm., but police wouldn’t comment on the details of his involvement in the case.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant remains in effect for fifth suspect, 28-year-old Muzamil Addow of Toronto.
