WESH – Three people are under arrest and charged with kidnapping after they tied up a 16-year-old boy and tried to glue him to a chair, according to officials. Officials said they were called to a home on Alcazar Street on the Daytona Beach Holly Hill line at about 4:45 p.m. Thursday. Kevin Wiseman, 18, told authorities that his friends Charles Westenhouser, 21, and Dustin Ardillo, 19, went to the victim’s house to participate in a rap contest, a news release said. Investigators said at some point the three thought it would be fun to bind the victim by the hands, feet and mouth with duct tape. Wiseman told deputies that the victim was laughing and going along with everything during the ordeal, but investigators said the victim told a different story. According to a news release, the victim said everything was done to him against his will and that the three threatened to shave his hair and put him in a dresser. When the trio went to get hair clippers, the teenager said he was able to hop into the house and unbind himself. Deputies said when they arrived he still had glue on his wrists, ankles and pants. Investigators said while the 16-year-old was freeing himself, 53-year-old Michael Delvecchio arrived at the house and became enraged at what had transpired. Deputies said Delvecchio, who was armed with a metal level, began fighting with Wiseman and struck Ardillo in the head with the level. Wiseman threw a flashlight at Delvecchio and hit him in the head, according to a release. Westenhouser, Ardillo and Wiseman are charged with kidnapping and child abuse.

 

Hey guys are we rapping here or are we duct taping, shaving, and gluing a 16 year old kid to a chair? C’mon what the fuck? Nothing worse than being the kid who thinks he’s hosting an innocent rap contest only to find himself duct taped and binded, hobbling away from three bullies wielding a pair of clippers and a bottle of glue. Went from MC to kidnapp and torture victim before the first battle was over. That’s rough. And the funny thing is that those three guys don’t even look like they’d do something like this. Seem like three perfectly wholesome fellas to me…
