Jeremiah Jermain Sharp, 27, of Dallas was arrested on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and parole violation by the Waxahachie Police Department following a routine traffic stop on in the 400 block of Grand Ave. at 10 19 p.m. Wednesday, March 20.
Sharp was taken into custody without incident. The traffic stop was instigated because the passenger side headlight was out.
Sharp was the second suspect in an alleged incident that took place Wednesday, Jan. 30 in Waxahachie. A warrant was issued for Sharp’s arrest in January.
Waxahachie Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 100 block of Flowers Street at about 9:55 p.m. in January. It was reported that several men had barged into the home and announced they were looking for the resident’s adult son.
“At about 11:30 p.m., we received another report that a 19-year-old female had been taken at gunpoint near that same location on Flowers Street,” Waxahachie Police Lt. Todd Woodruff said in a previous interview. “She was unaccounted for for several hours but turned up the next morning, unharmed.”
Woodruff said the female told detectives that three men took her at gunpoint while she was walking along Flowers Street and drove her to a house in the 900 block of E. Marvin Ave., where she was able to escape and run away.
Waxahachie detectives arrested Jeffrey Gerald Isaacs, 47, of Waxahachie on the charge of aggravated kidnapping Thursday Jan. 31 in connection with the alleged offense after the victim was able to make identification. Isaacs was taken into custody at Wayne McCollum Detention Center on unrelated charges prior to being charged with the alleged offense.
An arrest warrant was issued for a second suspect in the case at that time.
Sharp was booked into the Wayne McCollum Detention Center at 12:06 a.m. Thursday, March 21, with bonds totaling $200,000.
