Four Kansas City Residents Face Kidnapping, Gun Charges
Two brothers and two others from Kansas City, Missouri, are accused of abducting two people.
Federal prosecutors charged 30-year-old Jeremy Dobson, 25-year-old Joshua Dobson, 25-year-old Courtney Devero and 21-year-old Justin Watson with one count each of kidnapping and using a firearm during a violent crime.
Court documents allege a man and woman were tied to a pole in a Kansas City home's basement on March 10, held at gunpoint and beaten by the kidnappers.
Authorities say the woman later was left at a hospital and the male victim was driven by some of the suspects across Kansas and eventually was left tied up in a field near Russell. That victim managed to break free from his bindings and summon police.
Online court records don't show if the defendants have attorneys.
