Police seek two kidnapping suspects in Belton, $1,000 reward offered

BELTON, TX (KXXV) - Belton police are asking for the public's help to find two men who robbed and kidnapped a restaurant worker at gunpoint on January 3. Bell County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $1,000 for information that leads to arrests.

The victim said he got off of work at Jake's Chinese Buffet, located in the 500 block of E. 6th Street in Belton, about 10:30 p.m. Friday night. He was walking through the parking lot, when two Hispanic men approached him in an older model blue Ford. An armed passenger got out of the car, robbed the man, and then forced him to get into the trunk at gunpoint.

The victim told officers the armed man then got back into car, before they drove off and made several stops at unknown locations. After driving for several hours, the men let the victim go in the 1200 block of Valley Mills Dr. in Waco, about 7 a.m. Saturday morning. The victim was unharmed. The two suspects fled the scene after releasing him.

The armed passenger is described as a 25 to 30 year old Hispanic man who is between 5'8" and 5'10", with a medium build. He is also described as having black hair in a Mohawk-style, brown eyes and tattoos on both arms, including a portrait of a woman's face on his left forearm. He was last seen wearing a light brown shirt, baggy blue jeans, a black jacket, and a thick gold chain around his neck.

The driver is only described as a Hispanic man. The older model blue Ford used in the kidnapping had a broken passenger window that was covered with plastic and tape.
