Suspect in Cleveland kidnapping arrested in Harris County

Authorities say an arrest was made Thursday for the alleged kidnapping of a woman in the Cleveland area. Dequwann Marquis Villery, 27, was taken into custody without incident by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Task Force in Harris County.

Villery is charged with Aggravated Assault With a Weapon/Family Violence in Liberty County and is also facing another charge for Injury to a Child under the Age of 15 in Harris County.

The charges against Villery stem from an Oct. 1 report to Cleveland Police Department about an alleged kidnapping. Police were dispatched to Fuel Depot at 608 Nevell Street after the alleged victim walked into the convenience store with two small children and asked a store employee to contact police because she was being kidnapped.

Authorities say Villery entered the store and stood behind the female until they left with him in a dark green Toyota Corolla. The female and the two children were later released and in the care of relatives.

Villery is being held in the Harris County Jail on bonds totaling $90,000.
