Three men were arrested around 6:40 a.m. Monday at a home on Moores Drive after allegedly kidnapping and robbing a woman, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with the woman who told them Darius J. Johnson, 30, Oak Grove, and Spencer J. Clark, 25, Hopkinsville, were in the back bedroom of the home with guns, planning to hurt her, the report said.
The woman told officers that Johnson had struck her several times before Clark allegedly held a knife to her stomach and forced her to go to the back bedroom, where she was reportedly held against her will for around two hours, according to the report.
During that time, Johnson allegedly forced the woman to transfer funds from her account to his, the report added.
The woman also gave police permission to search the home.
The search revealed 178 grams of an unknown white substance in a computer bag, a small amount of cocaine in a small baggie, a small amount of marijuana in a baggie, a small baggie of ecstasy pills and a digital scale, all consistent with trafficking drugs, the report stated.
The report also stated there were five children, all under the age of seven, inside the home during the incident, putting them in substantial danger.
Officers arrested Johnson and Clark, but after being handcuffed, Johnson refused to stay against a wall of an adjacent house even after several commands, the report added.
