Police charge Raleigh man with kidnapping Durham teen

Durham authorities have filed a kidnapping charge against a Raleigh man arrested last month on charges that he had sex with a 15-year-old girl from Durham.

One of two Wake County men charged with having sex with a 15-year-old girl has been charged by Durham authorities with kidnapping the girl there.

Wake County sheriff’s deputies served the new arrest warrant Tuesday on Mundadi Eric Kalonji, 28, at the Wake County Detention Center, where he had been held on $500,000 bail since his arrest on March 25.

Raleigh police had charged Kalonji, of 3233 Calumet Drive, with two counts of statutory rape and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.

An arrest warrant said Kalonji had sex with the girl, who lives in Durham, on Jan. 23 and 24 and that he had pictures of her.

Durham authorities said the kidnapping happened Jan. 23.

Alezia Tuemo Mukoko, 23, was arrested at Kalonji’s apartment the same night as him and charged with statutory rape.

With the new charge, a magistrate raised Kalonji’s bail to $750,000.
