Border Patrol Agent Kidnapped, Pistol-Whipped In Florida

In a depressing story of young criminals and wasted lives out of Florida, four high school students have been arrested in the carjacking and kidnapping of a Hispanic border patrol agent who was on vacation with his family in Orlando.

The agent, who was visiting the area from Texas, was held up at gunpoint in an Orlando hotel parking lot last Wednesday evening. The man was forced to climb into the backseat, then pistol-whipped and tied-up and robbed. The agent was held for more than two hours as the suspect drove around. The carjackers finally bailed out of the car at a vacant drug house, according to a report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Suspects In Kidnapping Of Border Patrol Agent Arrested

Local media sources are also reporting that Gregory McDonald, 19, Dante Askins, 18, and two other teens, 15 and 16, were arrested late last Friday.

In further details on the incident, the wife of the abducted agent got ahold of police through the OnStar vehicle security service.

“The OnStar representative placed a call to the vehicle and heard someone screaming for help,” Sheriff Jerry Demings explained.

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the carjacking victim is named Armando Alaniz, who is employed Bureau of Customs and Border Protection in the Southern District of Texas.

Alaniz required several stitches to repair damage from a scalp wound resulting from the pistol-whipping.
