Four Charged With Kidnapping; Robbery
KENOSHA, WI—Four people are charged with the kidnapping and robbery of a Kenosha woman and the bank where she works.
The incident happened after the victim closed the Wells Fargo Bank on Martin Luther King Drive in Racine on June 28th. After picking up her two young daughters, the older of which is 5, she came home to her apartment.
As she left her car she and her children were abducted at gunpoint in the victim’s own car and then held in the basement of a house in Milwaukee. Early the next morning they forced the woman to open the vault in the bank, and after taking items from five drawers they fled, leaving the woman and her children in the bank.
During the investigation, officers were able to use a series of clues to obtain security videos and from there identified the suspects-William Howell, Gerorge Pearson-Robb, both 19, as well as 23 year old Donterious Robb and 18 year old Lamarra Powell.
They are all now charged in connection with the crime and are due back in court next week.
