An elderly Baltimore County man had nothing but praise yesterday for the efficiency of the police who rescued him from a Pikesville motel room just half an hour after he was bound to a chair with tape by a kidnapper.The rescue ended a strange odyssey for 72-year-old Abel Abraham Caplan, who was forced at knifepoint to cash in his individual retirement account, buy thousands of dollars in clothes and jewelry for his kidnapper, and even go grocery shopping.A recent parolee, hired as a live-in care provider for Mr. Caplan's wife two weeks ago, was in jail after the dramatic Thursday night scene at the Econo Lodge on Reisterstown Road, held in lieu of $200,000 bail.
