Evansville Police have arrested 2 adults and 1 juvenile after the three conspired to kidnap a 17 year old on Monday afternoon.

At 1:00pm on Monday, police responded to 2225 Frisse for a “person with a gun” call. Officers arrived and spoke to the 17 year old victim. He told them another 17 year old and an adult tried to force him into a red Jeep. He was able to fight them off before the juvenile pointed a handgun at him. He fled back into the house and called 911. He was not inured during the incident.
The men left in the Jeep with a third person driving. Officers located the Jeep on the Lloyd Expressway and arrested the three suspects. A gun was found in the Jeep. user30769-1422372154-media2_6f6e6c_192_240_PrsMe_
