A suspect wanted for the abduction of a Paterson business owner has been arrested, the FBI announced on Wednesday.
Reginald Law, 35-year-old, has been charged with kidnapping and use of firearm in connection with crime of violence.
Law and an accomplice brandished a handgun and repeatedly pistol whipped and wrestled the 70-year-old man inside the Easter Grocery and Food Market located at 462 10th Avenue before putting him in an U-Haul truck on October 8, 2020.

The victim was eventually recovered and survived.
Law also went by aliases, including Reginald J. Law and Reginald Brown. He is a construction laborer, authorities said.
