Georgetown man accused of kidnapping, burglary

Herald-Leader Staff ReportJune 30, 2014 

A Georgetown man is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges of kidnapping, burglary and violating an emergency protective order.

John Gray, 50, allegedly duct-taped the mouths and zip-tied the hands of his girlfriend, her 17-year-old son and the girlfriend's granddaughter on June 23, and then terrorized the girlfriend in her Williamsburg Lane house in the Colony subdivision for several hours, Georgetown police detective James Cole said.

The girlfriend was able to persuade Gray to release her and the other two, but on June 25, Gray was arrested on a previous violation of an EPO. The kidnapping and burglary charges were added after the girlfriend told police what had happened.
