Collier County deputies have arrested five teens they say kidnapped a 16-year-old over $160.

Arrested are two adults: Luigi Roca and Anthony Zangrilli, both 18 and three minors: Carlos Rodriguez, 16, and 15-year-old twin brothers Yankiel and Yoni Borden.

Roca and Zangrilli both had first appearance court on Friday. Bail was set at $500,000 each.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the victim was walking near his residence in East Naples when a red 4-door vehicle approached him.

The victim said Roca, Rodriguez and the Bordens got out of the vehicle and dragged him inside the car and put a pillowcase over his head. This happened just after 1:30 p.m., in broad daylight.

The teen was taken to Zangrilli’s apartment at Ibis Club. That’s where the group demanded that the teen pay $160.

The suspects beat the victim and told him he owed them money and used his cell phone to try to get money from his family. The report shows the teens texted the victim’s mother asking for the money, and she denied his request, unaware of the circumstances.

The victim said Roca, Zangrilli and Yankiel Borden pointed a gun and laser at the apartment. Zangrilli pointed a gun at him and threatened to kill him, deputies said.

The victim was given a green shirt or cloth to wipe blood off his face from the beating.

When it appeared the victim wasn’t going to pay up, the suspects drove him back to the intersection where they kidnapped him and threatened to kill his family if he called law enforcement.

The victim’s dad spoke to WINK News and said his son was doing OK.
