On July 12, 2012 at 5:37PM at Chartiers and Hillsboro a b/m, 22yo was walking in the area when a burgundy van with 3 black males armed with guns pulled up, asked the victim for directions and then forced the victim in the vehicle. It is reported by the victim that he was kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint and forced to take off his pants while the actors searched the victims clothing for valuables. The victim told police that he thought he was going to be killed so he decided to jump out of the moving van when he saw police and a group of people. He was slightly injured during the jump. US Currency, cell phone and ID card was taken from the victim.
Officers searched the area for the van with negative results. Officers subsequently located the vehicle parked and unoccupied in the 800 block of DuBois St. McGann and Chester towed the suspect vehicle for processing. The actors were identified to be between the ages of 22 and 30yo.
On July 14, 2012 Zone Six detectives secured an arrest warrant for David Walker (28 years old from Sheraden - see attached photo) for Kidnapping, Robbery and Criminal Conspiracy. Walker is considered armed and dangerous. Detectives are actively investigating the crime and attempting to identify the two other actors.
