November 27, 2019 GMT

BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to kidnapping another man at knifepoint, forcing him to drive to a strip club and then on to Connecticut.

Federal prosecutors say 24-year-old Julian Field, of Bedford, pleaded guilty to kidnapping this week. He faces a maximum of life in prison at sentencing March 3.

Prosecutors say Field broke into a Concord home on Feb. 3 and kidnapped a man in his late 60s as he was playing piano.

Field forced the victim to drive to a strip club in Springfield and demanded that he join Field while he tried to purchased fentanyl.

Authorities say Field then ordered the victim to bring him to a train station in New Haven, Connecticut where he boarded a train to Florida. He was arrested in Key West.
