LAS VEGAS -- Two adults and one juvenile are under arrest after they kidnapped and robbed a man they found on Craigslist, according to Henderson Police.

Police arrested 20-year-old Christopher Short, 18-year-old Trent Henrickson and a 16-year-old juvenile.

Police say on Tuesday, the victim responded to a personal advertisement posted on the popular site. He arranged to meet what he thought was one man at Trail Canyon Park, 1065 Trail Canyon Road.

Instead, the three suspects approached him and took him to a nearby vacant house. The suspects demanded the victim give him his money and property. When he refused, police say the suspects tied up the victim, beat him and took his wallet, cell phone and keys.

The suspects then went back to the park and took the victim’s Chevrolet Volt. The victim was able to free himself. He walked to a nearby car dealership and called police.

Police were able to use the car’s global positioning system to find it. It was parked near Stephanie Street and Wigwam Parkway.

When the suspects returned to the car, officers arrested them. Officers arrested the third suspect Thursday afternoon.

Short and Henrickson are being charged with robbery, first-degree kidnapping and grand larceny auto. The juvenile is being held at the juvenile detention center.
