Third Suspect In Connection With Teen Kidnapping And Beating Arrested

Two female teenagers already charged

An additional subject has now been charged in connection with an incident in which two sixteen-year-olds kidnapped and battered a teenage girl.

Jaylon Pace was scheduled for his initial court appearance Tuesday regarding multiple charges for Aiding, Inducing, or Causing an Offense including Level 3 Felony Kidnapping, Level 3 Felony Criminal Confinement, and Level 5 Felony Battery.

 According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, Pace was present at the Skyline Drive residence that the two sixteen-year-old girls allegedly took the victim after forcing her to leave a friend’s house on Robin Court June 19th. The victim told officers Pace was present during the entirety of the incident in which the victim was repeatedly battered, threatened, and had her hair forcibly shaven. The victim also said she believed Pace was recording the incident on a cell phone. The owner of residence where the incident took place also told officers he believed Pace had recorded the incident.

During an interview with deputies, Pace allegedly confirmed he was present, and confirmed the victim’s account of the incident. Pace said he did record the incident on his phone, but said one of the alleged perpetrators deleted the video. Officers noted in the affidavit that Pace’s phone is pass code protected, so Pace would have had to assist in deleting the video.

Officers recovered video of the incident on the phone of one of the alleged perpetrators when she was taken into custody. The affidavit states that at one point in the video the victim had multiple substances thrown or poured on her, and at least one of the substances was handed to the perpetrators by Pace.

A jury trial has been scheduled for both of the alleged perpetrators for September. A jury trial for Pace has been scheduled for October
