2 suspects charged in Youngstown after man was kidnapped, beaten

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Two suspects have been arrested after a man said he was kidnapped and beaten for hours.

Kevin Huggins, 37, said he went to visit Miesha Williams, 24, at 745 W LaClede ave. Saturday between 2 and 3 p.m., according to a police report. However, when Huggins entered the home, two males were waiting for him with shotguns in their possession.

Huggins, who said the suspects were aware that at least $12,000 hidden away somewhere, was tied up and subsequently beaten for hours until he revealed where the money was.

After learning of where the money was, the suspects went to the home, leaving Huggins duct taped at the previous residence, when a burglary alarm was triggered.

The suspects then fled the building. Huggins was eventually able to escape the building he was in for help. He said that his Chevrolet Trailblazer was stolen as well.

Williams and a second suspect, 27-year-old Dymond Ortello, were found and arrested at a home at 2811 Idlewood a couple hours after the incident. A large sum of money was found in the home as well.

Court officials said that Ortello had originally told police his name was Daniel Ortello. However, investigators discovered that his name was actually Dymond and that Daniel was his brother, who has been incarcerated since 2009 for the murder of Seetreon Dothard, according to court records.

Both suspects have been charged with aggravated robbery, burglary, and kidnapping. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
