BELLINGHAM— A 28-year-old man who tried to grab a woman and two girls off the street and briefly took a 2-year-old girl from a grocery store was sentenced Tuesday in Bellingham to 10 years in prison.
The Bellingham Herald reports Jake Unick pleaded guilty in May to kidnapping and kidnapping with a sexual motivation.
Judge Charles Snyder described Unick’s behavior as “frighteningly predatory” and said that the unpredictable, random nature of his attacks was discomforting. He hoped that Unick could use his prison time to address his issues and get help so he doesn’t repeat his crimes or escalate them.
