Police arrested and charged 36yrs-old Dorian Marshall, 23yrs-old Shalom Bailey and 33yrs-old Jason Millette all of Donavans along with Jamele “Marlo” Hurst of Nut Grove with Kidnapping.
All four men allegedly held a Bendals’ man at gunpoint on Wednesday and forced him into a motor car, and drove him towards the airport. It is alleged that the young man had refused to let them use his mother’s vehicle to commit a robbery. Upon reaching the Airport Service Station, he reportedly jumped from the moving vehicle and escaped in some nearby bushes, after he was threatened. He received several abrasions about his body, and has since been treated.
Members of the Rapid Response Unit (RRU) and the Special Services Unit (SSU) launched an immediate search for the men, and in less than 24hrs; Marshall, Hurst and Bailey were captured and taken custody. Millette surrendered himself to the police around 12:30pm on Saturday. The police have since recovered the white Toyota Allion motor car, which was involved in the incident. They are expected to appear before the court on Monday.
Meantime, 29yrs-old Ian Chapman of Tindale Road was charged with Assault with Intent to Rob. He is accused of assaulting a Gilpin’s Avenue, Grays Farm man with a gun on the night of December 3rd, 2016. The man was at the time sitting inside his vehicle at a bar on Old Parham Road, when the accused approached the vehicle armed with a gun and demanded money. Ongoing investigations into the matter led to his arrest after he was later identified as the key suspect. He is expected in Court on Monday.
