DAVENPORT — Three Muscatine-area people have been arrested and charged with kidnapping and robbery in connection with the assault of a woman in Davenport on Sunday, March 5. Police did not identify the victim nor where she is from.

According to police affidavits, Zachary Adcock, 21 and Kayla A. Herbert, 20, of Muscatine, along with Robert A. Cornell, 24, of Moscow, Iowa, picked up the victim at one location in the city and drove her to another where she was robbed. Police said they believe the victim and assailants knew each other.

According to the affidavit, once the three reached a parking garage in the 3500 block of West Kimberly Road, the three defendants physically restrained her and Adcock pointed a .380 caliber pistol at her while the co-defendants robbed her of nearly $3,000 she was carrying in her bra. The affidavit said the incident happened shortly after 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police did not say why the defendant was carrying a large amount of cash or whether she was injured in the incident. The victim notified police shortly after the kidnapping, which led to a description of the suspect’s vehicle. They were pulled over and put in custody shortly after the incident by Scott County Sheriff deputies, said Capt. Brent Biggs of the Davenport Police.

Adcock is charged with carrying weapons, 2nd degree kidnapping, 1st degree robbery and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony.

Cornell and Herbert are both facing charges of 1st degree robbery, 2nd degree kidnapping and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony.
