A man and woman are facing charges after they allegedly beat a man and kidnapped him, forcing him into the trunk of a car in Zion.
Devon D. Davidson, 28, and Nyesha A. Hill, 37, both of the 2400 block of North Lewis Avenue in Zion, are facing two counts aggravated kidnapping and one count of aggravated battery.
Zion Police Chief Kirk Henderson told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that Davidson and Hill allegedly battered and abducted a man on June 20 in Zion.
The victim was dog sitting Hill’s dogs when a burglary occurred at Hill’s residence. Davidson and Hill forced the victim into the trunk of Davidson’s car following the incident.
The two suspects opened the trunk to duct tape the victim’s hands and feet, Henderson said. The victim was able to escape and run to a nearby house where he asked the resident to call the police.
Arrest warrants for both suspects were issued on June 25. The Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team and Special Investigations Group began conducting surveillance at Hill and Davidson’s residence the next day.
Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said that Davidson was observed leaving the home in a vehicle and traveling to a gas station in the 39000 block of North Lewis Avenue in Beach Park.
He was taken into custody without incident at the gas station. Hill was observed exiting her home a short time and was also taken into custody without incident.
Additional charges are expected against the pair. Davidson’s bond was set at $500,000 while Hill’s bond was set at $400,000.
