Port Saint Lucie Felony Arrest Lawyer

Port St. Lucie Police Arrest Kidnapping Suspect

Help from a Port Saint Lucie Felony Arrest Lawyer

A 32-year-old man in Port St. Lucie is in need of a Port Saint Lucie Felony Arrest Lawyer after being arrested on kidnapping and aggravated battery charges. The man was taken into custody on Monday at about 6:00 PM.

Earlier on Monday, a man walked into a local branch of Bank of America and asked employees to call in a police emergency. Once on the scene, police learned the man had been held against his will and beaten by three male suspects. The incident took place at a residence not too far from the bank.

A subsequent news release revealed two of the men drove the victim to the Bank of America and instructed him to withdraw money from his account. The third suspect remained behind at the home where the assault took place to maintain control over a female victim.

The two men waiting outside the bank for the victim were able to flee the scene in a late model Chevy Suburban before police arrived at the bank. The police located the silver-colored vehicle not long after and executed the traffic stop. By this time only one of the two suspects was still in the vehicle.

The male victim suffered bruises and other injuries but none of his injuries were life-threatening. He was treated briefly at an area hospital before being released.

The female victim was unharmed and needed no medical attention.

Police have determined the incident was not random and the victims had prior dealings with the perpetrators. The other two men involved in the crime have been identified and police are asking for the public to help locate them.
