ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Police say a northern Virginia man with a gun threatened to kill a computer technician and refused to let him leave until the man's computer was fixed.

The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1NPqwVf ) reports that 50-year-old Joseph Nestor Mondello of Arlington was arrested Tuesday and charged with abduction.

According to an Arlington police report, the computer technician told investigators that Mondello had a gun, threatened to kill him and refused to let him leave his home until the computer was repaired.

It was not immediately clear whether the unspecified computer problem was ever resolved.

Online jail records do not show whether Mondello has an attorney to comment on the charge.
