Four teens were playing a 'dangerous game,' and they got caught. Now they're facing some serious crimes.
Armando Alaniz of Texas was on vacation with his family in Orlando. Outside of his hotel, he was attacked by four high school students. They pushed him into the back seat of the car, pistol-whipped him, tied him up and held him captive for two hours.
When Alaniz's wife couldn't track her husband or car down, she got an agent with OnStar to place a call to the vehicle. The agent heard someone screaming for help and called police.
The attackers were identified later as Gregory McDonald, 19, Dante Askins, 18, and two unnamed teens, ages 15 and 16. They eventually ditched the car at a vacant drug house and fled the scene. Though beaten and in need of stitches, Alaniz was not seriously injured.
Little did the teens know, their victim was a federal agent with U.S. border patrol. All four were arrested. The teens are known to have gang ties and already had previous run-ins with police. They face charges of kidnapping, carjacking and battery with a firearm.
“These high school students were playing a dangerous game, and they got caught playing a dangerous game," said Sheriff Jerry Demings.
