Where defendant failed to object at trial to the court’s “reduction” of the abduction charge to assault as a “lesser included offense,” this claim is barred by Rule 5A:18, since defendant raised no objection to the trial court with respect to its decision on reducing the charge when defendant moved to strike the evidence.
