KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A second man was arrested Sunday, charged with kidnapping a man and his young son at gunpoint and forcing the man to withdraw hundreds of dollars from an ATM.

Elijah Tre Crosswhite, 19, is charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and especially aggravated kidnapping. He was arrested Sunday at a Knoxville motel.

Cameron Lee, 17, was also arrested on January 14 and faces the same charges. Lee will turn 18 next month.

According to an affidavit, the victim told police he was ambushed by the two men with guns as he sat with his 16-month-old son in a vehicle outside the Dollar General on Executive Park Drive.

One suspect forced his way into the truck and ordered the man to drive to Bank of America, 9375 Kingston Pike, where the victim was forced to withdraw $300.

The victim said the suspects took the cash, ran to a blue Ford Explorer in the nearby Home Depot parking lot, and fled the scene.

Crosswhite is being held on $165,000 bond.
