A 46-year-old West Valley City man is accused of kidnapping, robbing and assaulting boys he allegedly tied up for disrespecting his daughter.
Mohamed Shobi B. Mohamed-Sidik is charged in 3rd District Court with two counts each of kidnapping, robbery and assault over the Aug. 16 incident.
One of the boys told police he was invited to the home about noon that day, but that the man got angry when the boy entered his daughter’s room. Charges do not make clear what happened in the girl’s room to give Mohamed-Sidik the impression that the boy had shown her disrespect.
Mohamed-Sidik took the boy’s cellphone and, with help from his son, removed the boy’s clothes and tied the boy to a chair, the boy said in charging documents.
