Shawlee Tuli Ama, 21, has been charged with two counts of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery, both first-degree felonies. The incidents started with Ama using a cell phone with an area code and pretending to be a woman.
He arranged to meet with each man at a residence at W. Cherrywood Lane in Taylorsville, according to the court documents. When each man arrived, Ama in both cases got into the vehicle, showed a handgun and ordered the man to drive to an ATM, the charging documents said. Ama took off on foot but was later apprehended at a residence near West and South. He was carrying possessions belonging to each of the two men, police said.
He was booked into Salt Lake County Jail that night. Officers later visited the Cherrywood Lane residence, where they determined the person living there was not involved, according to the charges.
The first victim had seen a news story on the Internet about the second incident that happened the next day and said he recognized the person arrested as the one who had robbed him, the charges state. Start your day with the top stories you missed while you were sleeping.
