LEBANON, Ind.–A person who was able to kidnap a staff member of the Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home, and two other juveniles, with a butter knife now faces charges of kidnapping, intimidation and strangulation.
Lebanon Police did not name the suspect or provide any other identifying information, other than the juvenile is male.
The incident happened Sunday at 11 a.m. and began at the home when the suspect grabbed her by the mouth and held the butter knife to her side, saying he needed her to drive him to Indianapolis. She refused at first, but she ended up in the driver’s seat of a car, with the suspect in the passenger seat with the knife and two other residents of the home in the back seat.
The woman asked the suspect to throw the knife out. He put it in the glove compartment.
Once they reached the overpass at I-65 and State Rd. 39, one of the people in the back seat grabbed the suspect and the woman got out and ran to a business to call 911.
Lebanon Police soon arrived and arrested the suspect.
