WASHINGTON — A London resident who pleaded guilty to kidnapping a Georgetown University student and attempting to rob him will be deported.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said in a release 35-year-old Paolo Aldorasi was sentenced Tuesday to 24 months in prison, with all but 11 months suspended. Since Aldorasi has been incarcerated for 11 months, he now faces deportation and five years’ probation, during which he’s barred from the United States.

Aldorasi pleaded guilty to assault with intent to commit robbery in November.

Authorities say Aldorasi abducted the victim near the school’s main campus and drove him to four banks, a Best Buy and a Cartier store in Maryland in January 2017. Aldorasi let the student go, uninjured, when the transactions failed.

He was arrested in Seattle in February.
