Two men and a woman were taken into custody after allegedly kidnapping and threatening a man at gunpoint on Tuesday.

According to a police report, Christian Reyes forced Abraham Leal-Gamino into his car at gunpoint and brought him to an apartment near Roeser Road and 32nd Street, where Maria Delosangeles Sevilla and Jonathan Reyes were waiting with guns.

The three suspects allegedly accused Leal of stealing money from them and demanded it back.

Leal-Gamino denied knowing about the money or theft, but told the suspects he could get money from where he works, the report stated.

Christian Reyes and Sevilla brought Leal-Gamino to his work, near Broadway Road and 32nd Street, and Christian Reyes went in with him.

The report revealed that Christian Reyes hid his gun in his waistband and told Leal-Gamino he would shoot him if he was uncooperative.

Leal-Gamino asked for money from at least two employees before management separated Leal-Gamino from Christian Reyes and physically forced him out of the business.

Police searched the apartment Leal-Gamino was allegedly brought to and found cocaine, a marijuana plant, scales and a short barrel shotgun.

All three suspects were found on Wednesday.

During an interview, Sevilla denied knowing about the crime, but admitted to being in the US illegally.

According to the report, Jonathan Reyes told police Leal-Gamino was brought to the apartment because of missing money, that he had a shotgun next to him while they were talking and that he is in the US illegally.

Police say he also admitted to owning the marijuana plant and the cocaine, which he said he sells.

Sevilla faces charges of armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a weapon by a prohibited person and possession of a deadly/defaced weapon.
