LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he and two juveniles kidnapped a man and forced him to withdraw money from an ATM.
It happened on Oct. 16, 2013, according to an arrest warrant. Police say 19-year-old Dujuan Stokes and two accomplices placed a handgun against the victim's neck and forced him to get into his vehicle.
Stokes allegedly took the victim's wallet and car keys and told him he would kill him if he didn't comply.
Police say the suspects then made the victim drive to two ATMs, including a location at E. Oak St., near S. Preston St., where one of the juveniles was able to use the victim's card to withdraw $200.
Afterward, police say the suspects dropped the victim off in the Germantown area and drove away in the victim's vehicle.
That vehicle was later recovered on E. Ormsby St. in the driveway where one of the alleged juvenile accomplices lived. Both juveniles were arrested a short time after the incident. Police say they learned Stokes' identity after questioning the juveniles.
A warrant for Stokes' arrest was issued on Nov. 4, 2013. He was arrested shortly after midnight on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, and charged with kidnapping and first degree robbery.
