A Dallas County deputy pulled over a truck for speeding early Monday morning, only to find one of the passengers had allegedly been kidnapped.
According to court records, 42-year-old Gregory Guzman and 38-year-old Ruben Segoviano each face charges for aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery and being in the country illegally.
Deputies say about 12:15 a.m. Monday, deputies spotted a white Toyota traveling very fast on C.F. Hawn Freeway near Second Avenue. After pulling the vehicle over, the deputy noticed a strong smell of alcohol coming from the driver.
While the deputy was performing a sobriety test on the driver outside the truck, one of the two passengers got out and said, "Malo mans," meaning "Bad men."
After a Spanish-speaking deputy arrived, the passenger, 34-year-old Manuel Torres, told investigators that he had been kidnapped by the two other men earlier in the day.
Torres said he got into a car crash with the two near I-30 and Fort Worth Avenue on Sunday night. The two suspects, Guzman and Segoviano, demanded that Torres give them cash to pay for the damage. When Torres told them he had no money, they forced him to drive to his home to get items of value to cover the cost.
Deputies found some of Torres' belongings with Guzman and Segoviano, which helped lead to the charges.
Both men are being held on $200,000 bond each.
