Two men from Pittsburg have been booked following an incident Thursday night in that city.
A 19-year-old man told police he refused to give two men a ride just before 8:30 p.m. outside of The Break at 607 N. Broadway.
At that point, the victim said one of the men allegedly exposed a handgun and forced him to give them a ride. He did that but intentionally drove his vehicle into a ditch on West 4th Street and fled on foot.
He then ran to a nearby house where he called police.
The two men drove away in the victim’s vehicle. Deputies pursued them until the vehicle became disabled in a field near 130th and 575th in Crawford County.
Authorities used a drone to locate one of the men who fled on foot.
Pittsburg Police arrested 23-year-old William Steig and 25-year-old Damian Capps of Pittsburg.
Both are charged with aggravated robbery, kidnapping, felony theft, interference with law enforcement and other charges.
Steig and Capps are each being held on $53,000 bond.
