Kidnap-robbery fugitive captured in Palmdale

Richard Winton (LA Times) | September 28, 2011

A fugitive wanted for three years on robbery and kidnapping charges was arrested this week in Palmdale by an L.A. County sheriff’s anti-gang unit.

Joseph Lamar Williams, 27, was arrested at a house in 1200 block of East Avenue R-3 at 4 p.m. Tuesday, said sheriff’s Lt. Erik Ruble.

Williams and two other suspected gang members allegedly assaulted, robbed and kidnapped a man in 2008. After inviting the victim to a home in the 500 block of Lancaster Boulevard in Lancaster, the three accused him of stealing from them, Ruble said. When he denied it, they beat him up and stole from him, he said. “After the assault, they drove the victim from the location against his will and told him they were going to kill him,” Ruble said.

“The victim was able to escape from the suspects’ vehicle when it was stopped at Avenue J and Cedar Avenue, and sought assistance from law enforcement.”
