DeKalb police arrested a Sycamore man they believe kidnapped and sexually assaulted an NIU student Wednesday afternoon.

Todd S. Allgood, a 33-year-old NIU student, was arrested Wednesday night at his home at the Edgebrook Trailer Park with help from Sycamore police. A grand jury Thursday charged him with aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping, kidnapping and two counts of unlawful use of weapons.

The alleged victim is a 21-year-old NIU student police say was abducted at gunpoint while entering her car just east of the Mason Property Office and south of NIU parking lot 38/S about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. She reportedly was forced to drive Allgood to his home, where he sexually assaulted her.

Police say Allgood then forced the victim to drive him to Gabel Hall, where he exited her vehicle.

Allgood remains at the DeKalb County Jail with a $750,000 bond.
