Suspect arrested for robbery & kidnapping in Tuscaloosa

Posted: Updated:

Tuscaloosa Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a robbery and kidnapping case.  Rafeal Omar Nevels is charged with 2 counts of first degree robbery and 1 count of first degree kidnapping.  The 26 year old is at the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $160,000 bond.

 

Just before 10:00 Sunday night, officers received information of a victim in a vehicle that was in danger.  The vehicle was traveling on Crescent Ridge Road at a high rate of speed.  Police initiated a traffic stop at Crescent Lane and took Nevels into custody.  The victim told police that he received a phone call from Nevels stating he needed help.  The unidentified victim went to pick him up and after Nevels got inside he pulled a handgun and demanded money.  The two drove to a bank and withdrew money from the ATM.

 

Police say Nevels also matched the description of a suspect that committed a robbery earlier Sunday evening at the Lucky Dollar Food Mark on Crescent Ridge Road.
