4 people have been charged with kidnapping, beating, and imprisoning a woman in Orange County
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has arrested four people accused of kidnapping, beating, and imprisoning a woman.
Investigators responded to a Pine Hills home around 2:10 p.m. Saturday after they said a woman in her 40s managed to escape her alleged captors and seek help from neighbors.
While on site, Channel Nine saw deputies surrounding the house telling people to get out.
About five hours later, everyone inside was arrested.
The deputies found the woman with minor injuries.
Detectives said on Sunday that Monica Latrise Reid, 37, Damon Andrew Trump, 19, Kevin Rudolph Holmes, 21, and Cortez Marenzo Bernard Jackson, 39, were arrested.
Court documents allege the suspects worked together to tie the victim’s hands, force her into a car, and threaten her with a gun.
The arrest affidavit states that the suspects forced the woman into a dog cage in a backyard shed to obtain information about a stolen item.
The woman said that Monica Reed also hit her with a gun.
Court records show Reed was arrested eight times on charges ranging from burglary and criminal mischief to battery, witness tampering, stalking and battery of a pregnant woman.
Jackson has more than a dozen arrests including drug charges, robbery, domestic violence, and attempted first-degree murder.
