Gunman forces family to shop at Target
By Associated Press
DURHAM, N.C. (AP), A North Carolina man has been arrested after police say he kidnapped a family at gunpoint and forced them to take him shopping.
Durham police said that on Tuesday, June 20 that Rollin Anthony Owens Jr. knocked on the door of a house in the West End neighborhood asking for money. A resident gave Owens money, but police say the 29-year-old man then used a gun to force the residents -- a man, woman and two children -- out of the house and into their vehicle.
Owens allegedly made the driver take him to a convenience store, then a Target where a victim managed to ask an employee for help.
Owens is charged in with three other robbery cases, two of which involved kidnapping. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
