An eighth person has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of a North Carolina prosecutor's father. The most recent defendant, a 21-year-old man, is slated to appear in federal court in late April in connection with the incident. He was arrested on April 21 for his alleged involvement in the federal crimes, when officers found him at his home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Authorities say that the young man and one other defendant are accused of immobilizing the victim by using a stun gun when he answered the door to his home. That incident occurred on April 5. The two men then reportedly worked with two female defendants to carry the man from his home and into a waiting vehicle. From there, the victim was reportedly driven to Georgia and forcibly held in an apartment in that state.
