Man, 27, accused of kidnapping girlfriend

A 27-year-old man is accused of kicking the mirrors off his girlfriend’s vehicle during an argument and then holding her captive at gunpoint inside his apartment until she escaped through a window.

Police on Saturday morning booked Reynold Lovely, 2360 Balis Drive, Apt. 7, into Parish Prison on counts of second-degree kidnapping and simple criminal damage to property, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Lovely is accused of bringing his unwilling girlfriend into his apartment while holding a pistol to her head and blocking the door with a couch, forcing her to escape out of a bedroom window, the affidavit says.

Armed robbery committed inside SUV

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested a 24-year-old man Friday accused of robbing a man at gunpoint Aug. 11 inside a SUV and threatening to kill him.

Deputies booked Sky Stamm, 38219 Debbie St., Prairieville, into Parish Prison on counts of armed robbery, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The victim told detectives that two men, including Stamm, and a woman picked him up shortly before 5 p.m. Aug. 11, under the premise that they’d drive him somewhere to make a drug sale, the affidavit says.

While driving around the neighborhood, Stamm is accused of wrapping a seat belt around the victim’s neck while the other male passenger, identified as “Lizard,” pointed a pistol at the victim’s head, the affidavit says.

When the victim refused to hand over money and drugs, “Lizard” fired a bullet from the pistol past the victim’s head and threatened to “blow his brains out and throw him in a ditch,” the affidavit says.

The victim gave the men nearly $500 in cash, a cellphone and a baseball cap.

The robbers then kicked the victim out of the car and threatened to “come back to his house and kill him and his whole family” if he called police, the affidavit says.
