DURHAM — Police are asking for information about a kidnapping and vehicle larceny that occurred on Saturday outside of Biscuitville.
According to police spokeswoman Kammie Michael, a man went into Biscuitville at 1806 Holloway St. shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday.
He left a 4-year-old child inside the vehicle, which was running, in the parking lot. While the man was inside Biscuitville, two men got in his vehicle and drove away with the child still inside.
When the suspects realized the child was inside the car, they put him out, unharmed, about a block away near the intersection of Raynor and Liberty streets.
The vehicle – a black 2007 Chrysler Aspen SUV with North Carolina license XVV-2735 – has not been located.
The suspects are described as two black men, possibly in their 20s. One man had a light complexion and was wearing black pants and a gray sweatshirt. Investigators do not have any additional description of the second man, or any other identifying characteristics of the first suspect such as scars or tattoos.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective V.P. Bynum at 919-560-4281 extension 29123 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
