Kidnapping

El Malon, by Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858). Historic painting depicting kidnapping of a woman.

In criminal law, kidnapping is the abduction and restraint by force or unlawful transportation of a person usually in order to hold them captive against their will. This may be done with a demand for ransom in exchange for releasing them from concealment, or for other illegal purposes. Kidnapping can be accompanied by bodily injury which elevates the crime to aggravated kidnapping.
