WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — A Florida man is accused of kidnapping a woman and threatening her with a box cutter, authorities said.
Sir Dangerous Lashawd London, 27, of Winter Haven, was arrested Tuesday, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office online booking records. The nine charges against London included armed kidnapping, burglary of an occupied conveyance, aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, grand theft of a motor vehicle and robbery.
He was being held without bail in the Polk County Jail, online records show.
According to the Winter Haven Police Department, London got into an argument at a Winter Haven apartment complex, WFLA reported. According to an arrest affidavit, London grabbed the woman’s car keys and refused to return them to her, the television station reported.
The victim got into another car and attempted to leave, but investigators said London jumped through the passenger side of the vehicle and began punching its front windows, cracking them, WTSP reported. The woman attempted to drive toward the front entrance of the apartment complex and stopped, the television station reported.
At that point, London allegedly retrieved a silver box cutter from the vehicle’s center console and threatened the victim, holding the blade to her throat, according to WFLA.
Police said London threatened the woman, allegedly telling her he was “going to make your life miserable,” and told her to drive home, the television station reported. When the woman did as she was instructed, London allegedly ran to the original vehicle and followed the victim, who was attempting to elude him, according to WTSP.
London then allegedly attempted to hit the woman’s car as she tried to drive away, authorities said. The woman drove to the Winter Haven Police Department, and officers arrested London a short time later, the television station reported.
