Omaha police have arrested a man accused of throwing a teenager in the trunk of a car and threatening to cut off her fingers and toes.
Antonio Smith was taken into custody early Monday morning.
Three weeks before his arrest, police reached out to the public, asking for tips as to his location and the location of another suspect - Marqueze Swift.
Smith is being charged with kidnapping. If convicted, he could face 50 years behind bars.
The crime happened early in the morning of June 6th. The 18-year-old victim told police she had been assaulted by a man and woman.
The two put her in a car's trunk, and drove around. During the ride, they told the teenager they knew she was involved a robbery.
A police report says the suspects told the woman they planned to keep her in their basement and cut off her fingers and toes one at a time until they told her what they wanted to know.
Eventually, the victim was let go by the suspects.
Vickie Smith, 37, has been arrested for the crime. Police believe two men are also responsible: Antonio Smith, 27, and 19-year-old
Marqueze "Baby Swift" Swift.
The police report indicates Swift was one of the two in the car.
Both are wanted on kidnapping warrants.
