Fayetteville, N.C. — Fayetteville police arrested three people Saturday night on multiple charges including robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping after a man and his six-year-old son were robbed at gunpoint.
Darrian Djuan Reed, 23, Diquarius Javarus Renfro, 18, and Channell Nesmith, 22, were each jailed under a $400,000 secured bond on two counts of second-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, and felonious possession on stolen property.
Officers responded to the 1400 block of Cantrell Court in west Fayetteville Saturday morning at about 3:30 a.m. According to police, the man got out of his vehicle and was immediately confronted by two armed men who began making demands for his vehicle and property.
