The victim spoke with police and said that he had been driving his Silverado in Davie on February 2 when he stopped at a stop sign, which is when 30-year-old Joshua Aaron Greiff and 34-year-old Natalie Rebecca Williams came to the vehicle and asked if they could have a ride. He declined, which is when Williams tried reaching inside the vehicle to open the door.
The victim decided that he would give them a lift when they got inside his vehicle. However, when he started driving, Williams pulled out a black handgun and pointed it at the victim. They made him drive to a mobile home in Davie and forced him to enter. Six men, including Greiff and 31-year-old Andres Rafael, were in the home and claimed that they were part of a gang. When they forced him to empty his pockets, they started punching and generally beating him. Williams claimed that he had seen too much and that they should kill him.
On February 3 after 12 hours of torture, Greiff untied the victim and allowed him to leave after stealing from his bank account. The victim went to a clinic and received nine stitches. He was treated for bruising all over his body. He spoke with police and led officers to the mobile home.
The three spoke with police and spun the story so that it would appear as if they were the victims, and said that the undocumented man voluntarily gave up his bank information. Since then, the three were charged with felony counts of armed robbery, kidnapping, and aggravated battery. They are all currently being held in jail.
It is believed that more victims might have been involved in this case.
