Posted Updated

DURHAM, N.C. — Durham police investigators have charged 17-year-old Vincent Von Holloway with five felonies in connection with Thursday's kidnapping, rape and robbery of an N.C. Central University student.

According to police, the student was getting out of her car near the NCCU campus around 11 a.m. on Thursday, when a man armed with a knife confronted her and forced her back into her car.

Police say the man and woman drove to a location in the southern part of the city, where the man raped the victim and then fled in her car, which contained her purse and other belongings.

Holloway was arrested late Thursday by Burlington police officers after a gas driveoff was reported in Mebane.

When officers stopped Holloway, he was driving the woman's 1996 Honda Accord.

Durham police investigator K.L. Gregory and Durham CrimeStoppers Coordinator David Addison worked through the night on the case.

On Friday morning, Gregory charged Holloway with first-degree kidnapping, first-degree rape, first-degree sexual assault, robbery with a dangerous weapon and larceny of a motor vehicle.
