Police: 4 teens arrested after abducting high school student

Police have arrested four teenagers they say abducted a high school student at gunpoint.

Multiple news outlets report an 18-year-old male from Wilson Memorial High School in Fisherville was taken by five people late Friday night and released early Saturday morning.

Police said the victim’s abductors were wearing black hoods and he was tied up with his head covered with a bag.

Authorities have arrested 19-year-old Beau Robacker, 18-year-old Tyler Hochstetler and 18-year-old and MacKenzie Carter and charged them with abduction by force, robbery, conspiracy and abduction by force conspiracy.

Eighteen-year-old Hunter McMillon is charged with abduction by force conspiracy, robbery, and other charges.

Police said two juveniles are also being questioned in regard to this case.

It is unclear if the teens have lawyers.
