Baltimore, Md. (RH) – A Germantown man was one of several people indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiring to kidnap an individual that they met at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in the National Harbor in February.
Authorities said Tray David Sherman, 26, of Germantown, MD, was one of five men that was charged in a criminal complaint that detailed his alleged involvement in the case. Police said Sherman left the casino with the victim and drove to Washington D.C. in his vehicle along with another suspect. The victim can be seen in surveillance footage getting out of the car and meeting with an unknown male. The victim and the man appear to give each other something and the victim then gets back in Sherman’s car and they drive away from the area.
Four other men, Darius Lawrence Young, 28, Christopher Allen Young, 26, Anthony Erik Hebron, 28, Lamar Jamal Perkins, 27, all of D.C. are facing stiff prison sentences.
Court documents allege that the victim was kidnapped at gunpoint, then beaten and threatened to obtain information regarding the code to the safe in his hotel room. During the abduction, the defendants allegedly stole the victim’s hotel key, watch, wallet, identification, phone, and cocaine that the victim had purchased during the stop in Washington, D.C.
Sherman was ordered held during a detention hearing on Wednesday.
