LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Three people face 17 felony charges of kidnapping after a video surfaced online showing police arresting one of them. The L.A. County District Attorney charged Amber Neal, Keith Andre Stewart and Johntae Jones with kidnapping actors Daisy McCrackin, 36, and Joseph Capone on May 3, 2017 in South L.A. Other charges include assault with a firearm, grand theft, mayhem, conspiracy and possession for sale of a controlled substance. McCrackin, who has appeared in movies such as “Halloween Resurrection” and “3000 Miles to Graceland,” was taken from a home, along with Capone.
The trio reportedly pistol-whipped Capone before driving him and McCrackin to Jones’ home in Compton, where they allegedly stripped Capone naked and held him in a bathtub for 30 hours while forcing McCrackin to pay a ransom of at least $10,000. McCrackin took money out of an ATM before being forced to write the kidnappers a check, but was then able to escape two days into the ordeal and call 911.
