Private Detective: Man Kidnapped Family and Forced Them to Take Him to Target

A North Carolina man has been arrested after police said he kidnapped a family at gunpoint and forced them to take him shopping at Target.

Durham police said Rollin Anthony Owens Jr., 29, knocked on the door of a house in the West End neighborhood on Tuesday, asking for money.


A resident gave Rollins money, but police said he then used a gun to force the residents – a man, woman and two children – out of the house and into their vehicle.

Police said Owens made the driver take him to a convenience store, then to a Target, where a victim managed to ask an employee for help.

Owens is charged in connection with three other robbery cases, two of which involved kidnapping.
