Darryl Allen Jr., 23, also faces a kidnapping charge in connection with the Oct. 4 incident at his 415 Wilson St. home. Police said that the victim was seriously injured.

The charges against Allen were filed on Nov. 3.

    People like you scare me more than this offender. Guess that's now a racist comment either there Einstein.

    rdmcswai, you're strictly rocking the boat.....THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT'S ABOUT...who would you rather have sit beside you on a city bus, this guy(did you check his record btw), or let's say(and I'll keep it in the same race) Colin Powell....exactly what I thought. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. Isn't not racism, it's realism......get over yourself

    Ohhhhh, so it's about cornrows and 'looking the part'. It all makes perfect sense now!

    Ptsh, yeah right.

    rdmcswai, did I mention race? If a white dude was up there with cornrows looking the part I'd say the same thing. So, before you go throwing stones about racism, don't live in a glass house.

    Not everything is about race. The guy is obviously no good. Look at his record. Assault on a police officer too. Just sayin!

    Braddavis - I certainly hope you're not referencing the color of his skin. People like you scare me more than this offender.

    Can't imagine why this guy would be wanted......he looks like a fine, upstanding, tax paying, church going, law abiding citizen to me
