Three Indicted Over Kidnapping Of ‘Halloween: Resurrection’ Actress

Three people have been charged with kidnapping a star of the Halloween film series, along with another actor - holding the latter for ransom. Jones and Stewart have also been detained and are being held on $3 million and $2 million bail, respectively. It was not immediately clear whether they had attorneys who could comment on the allegations.

It alleges suspect Stewart "did unlawfully and maliciously deprive Joseph Capone of a member of the body and did disable, disfigure and render it useless".

He was also allegedly assaulted with a "semiautomatic" firearm by Stewart.

The trio reportedly pistol-whipped Capone before driving him and McCrackin to Jones' home in Compton, where they allegedly stripped Capone naked and held him in a bathtub for 30 hours while forcing McCrackin to pay a ransom of at least $10,000. Driving McCrackin's auto, Jones and Neal took McCrackin to two different Bank of America locations where they forced her to withdraw funds. The suspects also allegedly stole McCrackin's auto, a 2011 Lexus. At one point $100 was withdrawn and handed over to Jones and Neal, the indictment states. According to the indictment, Neal also forged a document transferring ownership of the Lexus into her name. Neal then deposited it into her own account, the indictment said.

Jones and Neal then allegedly took McCrackin back to her home and stole her auto. Neal claimed the auto was given to her by McCrackin, the document states.

On Monday, she was rearrested in a traffic stop captured by an onlooker's video that went viral.

Footage of Neal's arrest was later posted onto Twitter, with social media users critical of officers for surrounding an "unarmed, black woman" and pointing their guns at her, unaware she was a suspect in a felony kidnapping.

Jones and Neal were arrested with a bail set at $1 million each.

Daisy McCrackin, who appeared in 2002's Halloween: Resurrection, and Joseph Capone were held for roughly two days by the kidnappers. All three were scheduled to be in court for a pretrial hearing July 23.
