Ft Collins Colorado man mistakes innocent man for a sex offender

Proof the adage about people going bald
due to brain use is a myth
This man is a career criminal arrested for kidnapping and attacking a man with a knife, mistaking him for a sex offender. This begs the question-- had his victim been a real registrant, would he even been charged?

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A Fort Collins man faces kidnapping and assault charges after police said he abducted a man he apparently mistook for a child molester.
Brandon Benhamin Mau, 32, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by a SWAT team.
Investigators believe Mau threatened a man with a knife and forced him into his vehicle Monday on West Plum Street near Taft Hill Road, reported the Fort Collins Coloradoan.
Mau released the man at City Park. Police said the man sustained minor injuries from the knife.
Police found no basis for Mau’s claim that the victim was a molester, said Detective Jim Lenderts.
A SWAT team was called to arrest Mau because he has a criminal history, Lenderts said.
Mau was arrested without incident and booked on suspicion of first-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault, third-degree assault and felony menacing.
According to state court records, Mau was booked into the Larimer County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
Mau’s criminal history includes a 2009 arrest on a burglary charge involving assault or menacing, criminal mischief, felony menacing and possession of a dangerous weapon. He later accepted a plea agreement to possessing an illegal weapon and was sentenced to two years of probation, according to state court records.
