Three people charged with kidnapping of Halloween actress

Starring in a horror film often means that violent acts are only a thing of fiction, but for star of Halloween: Resurrection Daisy McCrackin and actor Joseph Capone, a horrifying real-life encounter was far more terrifying than anything depicted in the film.

"Wow, really? We got. five guns pointed at this woman, at this unarmed black woman", the person says, as the woman continues to back up.

Three people have been charged with kidnapping two Hollywood actors in South Los Angeles in 2017 and holding them for ransom. The indictment said that the three conspirators "beat, punched, and kicked" Capone whenever he tried to protect McCrackin. The two allegedly forced her to write a check to Neal, who, who deposited it into her account.

The district attorney's office states that, if successfully prosecuted for multiple charges connected to the alleged kidnapping conspiracy, violence and theft, Stewart and Jones could face life in prison without the possibility of parole; Neal could face life.

According to the indictment, McCrackin and Capone were then taken to Jones' home in Compton, Calif., where the actor was held in a bathtub naked for 30 hours without food.

Amber Neal, the woman who was arrested at the Inglewood Starbucks on Monday, was also allegedly involved.

If convicted, Stewart and Jones face a maximum possible sentence of life with no possibility of parole, while Neal faces life. The indictment also alleges that Neal forged a document in order to claim she was the "new Registered Owner" of the Lexus.

Bail has been set for Jone and Neal at $1 million, with Stewarts set at $2.08 million. The suspects also allegedly stole her vehicle - a 2011 Lexus.

The alleged kidnappers then drove McCrackin home, where she escaped and was able to call police, officials said.

Jones is being held on $3 million bail, while Stewart is being held on $2 million bail. If convicted, they each face sentences of up to life in prison.

Neal was forced at gunpoint to exit a late model Honda Civic, prompting police critics to question the tactics and forcing the Los Angeles Police Department to reveal via Twitter that "this individual was arrested on a felony kidnapping warrant".
