 LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- Louisville police say the city's latest murder victim was robbed and kidnapped before he was murdered.

LMPD arrested Anton Anderson for the murder of 26-year-old Robert Jackson (Robinson) but detectives say they will likely make more arrests in this case.

Jackson's father tells WDRB he's offering cash to anyone with information.

"You came to get my son for some money. I have a $25,000 reward cash and I will pay," said Robert Robinson Senior in an interview with WDRB on Friday.

"We know there was a home invasion at his house and he was kidnapped at gun point," said Sgt. Emily McKinley with LMPD Homicide.

Police say Jackson was kidnapped from a home on N 38th Street in Louisville before he was taken nearly 30 blocks by his captors to Beecher Terrace. He was found on Liberty Court with multiple gunshot wounds. He died shortly after at the hospital. 

Anton Anderson has been arrested and charged with the murder.

He also faces kidnapping and robbery charges.

Sgt. McKinley says they're still piecing together the case but she's confident they'll find everyone responsible.

"There were several witnesses. There's evidence we've reviewed. We are looking for more individuals who are involved. We anticipate more arrests in the future," she told WDRB.

Robinson is currently making arrangements for his son to be buried but in the meantime, he wants to know what really happened.

"I want to put this behind me. I want whoever caught and to put my son to rest at peace," he said.

If you know anything about the crime, you're asked to call 574- LMPD. You can remain anonymous.
