The suspects in a kidnapping-turned-robbery have been arrested.

A man told police Monday that he had been assaulted in his home and then forced to drive the suspects to the Ace Cash Express near Academy and Galley to get money. While en route, police say the victim was able to discreetly call 911.

Tuesday, police arrested five people believed to be involved. Two have been identified as Forest Simon and Jarrod Smith. The others arrested are juveniles and have not been identified due to their age.

The five suspects face charges of aggravated robbery and conspiracy.
