WASHINGTON, D.C. – 22 year-old Jesse Benjamin Nunn was arrested and charged with armed kidnapping Monday.


Police are searching for a suspect wanted in an armed kidnapping that happened in Northwest, D.C. last month.

The victim willingly entered a vehicle with Nunn. Once inside the vehicle, police say Nunn assaulted the victim with a handgun and stole the victim’s property while a second suspect drove the vehicle.
