Police: Cell phone used to track armed man who tried to kidnap teen
Devin D. Donald, 21, of Reserve, was arrested last Wednesday in connection with an attempted kidnapping that took place outside of a Boutte nail salon.
A teenage girl told deputies that she was waiting for a ride in a parking lot off of Highway 90 when she was approached by a man armed with a gun. The man grabbed the teen and tried to force her into his car, but she was able to fight him off and escape to a nearby gas station to call 911.
Though the girl did not know her assailant, detectives say they were able to link Donald to the crime through the victim’s cell phone, which she reportedly dropped in the car before getting away.
After the crime occurred, a man used the cell phone to make a call. The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office says they were able to identify Donald as the gunman once they discovered the number he had called.
After his arrest, Donald was picked out of a photo lineup by the teenage victim.
Donald was arrested in LaPlace and is awaiting transfer to the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center in St. Charles Parish.
