RADCLIFF, Ky. -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation says it captured a second suspect in the kidnapping of a 67-year-old on Thursday without incident in his hometown of Radcliff, Ky. Jackson County prosecutors immediately announced charges against 17-year-old De'zahn J. Carey, who is accused with 25-year-old Robert Caldwell of kidnapping, assaulting and robbing the KC man after carjacking him in his south KC driveway on January 22.

Carey is charged in Jackson County with kidnapping, first-degree assault, first-degree robbery, and two counts of armed criminal action. He's currently in federal custody.

A probable cause statement says that following the kidnapping and escape by the KC man, several people contacted law enforcement agencies after surveillance images were released. One person called the TIPS Hotline and said the suspects were from Kentucky and "go to KC to do this sort of the crime frequently." The caller identified Caldwell by name and said the other suspect went by "Day Day."

Caldwell was captured on Tuesday after a lengthy car and foot chase. The probable cause statement says he admitted to robbing and kidnapping the victim in addition to other crimes when interviewed by state and federal authorities. He said his accomplice was "Da Da" who was identified as De'zahn Carey. Carey was also identified by a detective with the Radcliff Police Department after he looked at surveillance photos taken at ATMs and gas stations.

Court documents conclude by stating that the suspects tried to use the victim's bank cards to take as much as $2,000 out of his account, but all of those transactions were denied.
