FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers Police arrested two men yesterday morning, after a strange call requesting police assistance in reference to a subject they were holding at bay.
Police responded to 2845 Blount Street where they met with two brothers, 25-year-old Nikko Mitchell and 35-year-old James Sidney Llanos, who claimed the victim had stolen their firearm.
All parties involved were detained for officer safety and further investigation.
Once the parties were separated officers on scene determined the following had occurred: Mitchell and Llanos lent the victim a semi-automatic weapon three weeks earlier further described as a MAC-10 with an extended magazine and silencer. When Warren failed to return the weapon on time, Mitchell and Llanos began to search for him.
Mitchell and Llanos found the victim at approximately 10:30 a.m. yesterday morning in the 2900 block of Douglas Street. Mitchell and Llanos brandished handguns, confronted the victim and accused him of stealing their gun. The victim was forced at gunpoint into Mitchell and Llano’s Mercedes Benz.
During the next 15-20 minutes the victim was driven around by Llanos while Mitchell held a gun to the back of his head. Mitchell and Llanos began to interrogate the victim about the whereabouts of their gun and at one point struck him in the head with a firearm. Mitchell and Llanos eventually arrived at their residence on Blount Street and forced the victim inside at gunpoint while they called police.
Detectives located the two weapons used during the offense, a Taurus 9mm handgun and a pellet gun replica of a semi-automatic handgun.
At the culmination of the investigation police arrested Mitchell for aggravated battery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and carrying a concealed firearm.
Mitchell was also discovered to have active warrants for his arrest out of Henry County, Virginia for carrying a concealed firearm, providing false name to law enforcement, falsifying public records and driving while license suspended. The Taurus handgun recovered by police was also listed as stolen out of Henry County, Virginia.
Llanos was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
