Bellevue man who allegedly kidnapped, assaulted nephew arrested in Oregon

Bellevue law enforcement got a little assistance from Oregon authorities this week when the latter captured a man accused of kidnapping, assaulting and robbing his nephew in Bellevue.

Jason Leon Parmley, 43, was arrested in Oregon on Feb. 27 after he reportedly tied up his 23-year-old nephew with zip ties and held him against his will for several hours, according to the Bellevue Police Department.

The suspect demanded his nephew hand over the belongings Parmley had left at the family business in the 1200 block of 124th Avenue Northeast. Parmley then assaulted his nephew and threatened to slit his throat, according to court documents.

He had been arrested earlier in February on an unrelated charge.

Parmley has been charged with first-degree robbery and kidnapping. His victim was treated for his injuries and released.
