Two men are in Clark County Jail accused of kidnapping a woman and her 8-year-old daughter and forcing the victims to give them a ride to Meijer, according to a Springfield police report.
Christopher Strodes, 35, and John McCoy, 33, are being held in jail on $15,000 bonds. They are both charged with two counts of kidnapping, according to jail records.
The woman told police the men approached her outside her house on Friday and asked her for a ride to Meijer on Hillcrest Avenue. Her daughter then came outside and got in the van, according to the report.
The woman said she was afraid for her daughter, so she took the men to the store, where they told her to return two stolen remote controls for cash. Once inside the store with her daughter, the woman called someone she knows for help and the police were notified.
Officers found the men inside the woman's vehicle in the parking lot, according to the report.
One of the suspects told officers that the woman offered them a ride, and said she had to stop at Meijer so they waited in the van and that's when "before they knew it" officers showed up, according to report.
