Police have arrested a suspect who allegedly kidnapped a man then attempted to force him to rob a New Jersey bank on Thursday morning.
Tyrone Jackson, 52, of Camden, has been charged with kidnapping, criminal restraint and attempted robbery stemming from an incident in which police said he kidnapped and drove a man to a Cinnaminson bank in an effort to make the victim withdraw money from his account, The Associated Press reported.
The incident took place shortly after 9 a.m. at the Wells Fargo on Route 130, NJ.com stated in a related report. When the victim was sent inside the bank to withdraw money, he slipped a note to the teller.
That note said he was being held against his will, the AP reported. Police responded to the bank while the victim was still inside, and Jackson was taken into custody.
Police said it is not known if the two men knew each other, according to NJ.com.
Jackson was being held in lieu of $200,000 bail, the AP added.
