2 North Charleston men arrested on kidnapping, gun charges after woman reports threats
A North Charleston woman called police to say her fiancé had put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her, and officers found a cache of illegal guns when they pulled him over, according to police.
Fuquan Kenneth Fryar, 20, of Iris Street, was charged with kidnapping, criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and two felony counts of unlawful carrying of a firearm, according to jail records.
A passenger in the car with Fryar also was arrested. Antwan Lamont Haynes, 21, of Debbenshire Drive, was charged with unlawful carrying of a firearm, a felony.
Both were being held in the Charleston County jail Wednesday, Fryar on a total of $175,000 bail and Haynes on $25,000 bail.
Officers were called to an apartment on Iris Street shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to an incident report. A woman told police her fiancé accused her of cheating, put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her. He held her hostage until he finally drove off about noon, she said.
Officers pulled over the blue Saturn about 1:15 p.m. on Accabee Road, according to the report. The passenger, Haynes, took off running and was captured after a foot chase, police said.
Officers said they recovered a loaded silver H&R .22-caliber revolver on the ground near where they captured Haynes.
A search of the car turned up two loaded guns, a Highpoint 9 mm with an obliterated serial number under the driver’s seat and a .25-caliber Browning Baby between the passenger seat and center console, according to the report.
