A second suspect has been arrested months after a man who got into a car he thought was his Uber was kidnapped at gunpoint in the U Street nightlife area.
D.C. police said 21-year-old Imani Plummer Nunn was arrested and charged with armed kidnapping on Wednesday.
In September, police arrested and charged Jesse Benjamin Nunn with armed kidnapping in the case.
Police previously said that on July 14, a man entered a dark-colored four-door sedan near The Codmother restaurant on U Street, thinking he and the two suspects would be smoking marijuana. The suspects struck him with a handgun and drove him around, police documents say, withdrawing cash from his bank accounts before throwing him out of the vehicle in Maryland.
The victim went to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police were investigating whether the kidnapping was related to two other incidents from the same area, News4 previously reported.
In another case, a man entered a light-colored Honda sedan with two people inside. He thought it was a rideshare.
The suspects demanded the man's wallet and cell phone and brandished a gun, police documents say.
On July 27, a man entered a four-door SUV on the 600 block of U Street, believing he would be buying marijuana from the three suspects in the vehicle. The suspects prevented him from getting out while they drove around, before letting him out in Virginia.
No charges have been made in those cases.
It's important to check the name of the driver, the license plate and the driver photo before accepting a ride from someone who says they are an Uber driver, the ride-share's website says. News4 talked to riders who shared their tips to verify ride share drivers before getting in.
"I always check the license plate and confirm the name and I make them tell me my name first," one rider said.
