Charges dropped against man accused of kidnapping, robbing man at Minneapolis gas station
Prosecutors have dismissed charges against a man who was accused of kidnapping and robbing a person at an abandoned Minneapolis gas station.
In March, Desmond Graham was charged with kidnapping, first-degree aggravated robbery, third-degree assault and financial transaction fraud after a man told police he was carjacked and kidnapped the night before.
The man explained that he was taken to an abandoned gas station in the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South, then tortured until he gave the suspects his financial information so they could withdraw money from his account. He later said he was able to get away and ran to a nearby grocery store where the employees called 911.
However, on Monday, prosecutors filed to dismiss the charges against Graham due to information gathered through additional investigation.
