Two women arrested in kidnapping

November 14, 2007


Two women were arrested by Lawrence police Tuesday in connection with a weekend kidnapping incident.

Runita J. Bell, 32, and Annetta D. Moten, 40, both of Lawrence, are to have their first appearances Thursday in Douglas County District Court. Both were arrested on county warrants.

Bell and Moten are being held for aiding and abetting aggravated kidnapping and aiding and abetting aggravated assault.

Bell also was booked for aggravated battery. Moten also was arrested for making a criminal threat and two failures to appear in court.

The charges stem from an incident involving a 22-year-old Lawrence woman, who said she was held against her will for 15 hours Saturday and Sunday in an apartment in the 2500 block of Redbud lane. The woman told police she was threatened with a gun by a 27-year-old man and beaten with a kitchen utensil by a woman before she escaped.

There was no new information released about the male suspect.

I can't wait until charges are formally brought against these two... not because of the justice involved as much as I want to hear how they formulate the legalese pertaining to the aforementioned "kitchen utensil."
