Police: Two arrested in kidnapping from Henrietta hotel


HENRIETTA, N.Y. — Two people are in jail on kidnapping and assault charges after dragging a woman from the Microtel hotel this morning, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Police took the alleged kidnappers in custody and rescued the woman, who has been taken to the hospital for treatment.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, at around 5:45 a.m. Thursday a woman and a man dragged a woman from the lobby of the Microtel on Lehigh Station Road in Henrietta, taking her to a vehicle in the parking lot. Deputies investigated, including reviewing surveillance video, and identified the suspects and victim, determining that they were known to each other.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Major Crimes Unit investigators, Tactical Unit deputies, and Rochester police searched for the suspects and victims. They found and stopped the vehicle — with all three inside — in the area of Joseph Avenue and Sullivan Street in the city of Rochester, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies took all three to a substation for questioning and then took the victim to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Charged with second-degree kidnapping and second-degree assault were Cordell L. Brooks, 27, and Shuntiayana Sims, 27, both of Rochester. Arraigned in Henrietta Town Court, they are in Monroe County Jail on $100,000 cash bail, $250,000 insured bond, and $500,000 partially secured bond.
