Criminal complaint details Milwaukee County kidnapping, burglary charges against Timothy Olson

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A criminal complaint released to the press on Monday, Dec. 5 has shed light on charges being filed against Timothy Olson following a Nov. 24 incident. He has been dubbed the alleged 'dating app predator' during a lengthy pursuit.

The charges described by Milwaukee County Circuit Court are kidnapping, with an increased penalty for the victim being elderly, unauthorized use of personal identifying information or documents to obtain something of value, again with an increased penalty for there being an elderly victim, obstructing an officer as well as two counts burglary of a building, each carrying an increased penalty for an elderly victim.

According to the criminal complaint, Greenfield Police responded to a report of an elderly woman claiming to have been abducted on Nov. 24. Investigation determined that she had likely been kidnapped from Casa Di Giorgio in Franklin after entering her vehicle while leaving the restaurant. Olson reportedly told the victim, "I have a gun, drive," as well as, "I won't hesitate to kill you."

When the victim spoke to police on Nov. 27, she claimed that Olson identified himself as "Mario" when he made small talk with her at the bar before later entering her vehicle.

A credit card belonging to the Nov. 24 victim was reportedly found to be in Olson's possession when he was taken into custody on Nov. 29 in Franklin, with the complaint describing a scene in which Olson fled officers on foot before an officer deploying a taser on Olson to subdue him.

The Nov. 24 charges in Milwaukee County follow a string of allegations against Olson, including scamming women he met on dating sites, with three falling unconscious while with him, as well as being tied to a recent death investigation.

Franklin Police Chief Rick Olivia said during a Nov. 29 press release that the additional charges facing Olson from other jurisdictions will likely take longer to be filed due to additional evidence to process.
