New York man reportedly fakes kidnapping to explain absence to girlfriend

A Brooklyn man faked his own kidnapping because he was terrified of his lover’s wrath.

Rahmell Pettway, 36, told cops he spent two weeks away from his Bedford-Stuyvesant home — and then staged the crime to explain his absence to his girlfriend.

But his poorly executed plan unraveled when the cops who found him hog-tied in the street noticed the roll of duct tape still dangling from his wrists.

He eventually came clean, and was arrested for filing a false report.

“He’s a total moron,” said one law-enforcement source. “It was a pathetic attempt to pull the wool [over] her eyes.”

Pettway was first discovered by a passerby at 1:10 a.m. Thursday between two cars on Macon Street.
