The fifth and last person to be arrested and accused of being part of a group that abducted a man and tied him to a chair overnight on April 27th will face formal charges later today.
34 year old Timothy Becker of Scottsbluff is charged with robbery and 1st degree false imprisonment.
Court documents say the victim indicated he was lured to a Gering house, assaulted and tied to a chair overnight on the late April night. The next morning he was untied, given his wallet and released to leave. The following day when he returned to get “some belongings” he was told by a female suspect not to report the incident to Police or she would accuse him of rape.
30 year Tyler Piek of Gering and 27 year old Richard Durham, Jr. are charged with false imprisonment while 33 year old Raymond Gonzales and 26 year old Cassondra Rotherham are charged with false imprisonment and robbery.
