Three Guilty Over Chatham Kidnap

Three people have been found guilty of kidnap after a woman was bundled into a car in Chatham and subjected to a series of attacks.

The victim had arranged to meet one of her attackers to discuss some money that was owed in April, but when she turned up she was forced into a car and driven to a housing estate in London. 

She was then dragged to a secluded park where she was assaulted with a baseball bat, knuckleduster and dog chain. 

Kaswayne Williams, 19, of Peckham Park Road, Peckham,  George Emmett, 18, of Lakeside Close, Sidcup; and Sheneqwa Delpratt, 20, of New Paragon Walk, Walworth; were convicted following an investigation by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

A jury returned guilty verdicts after a two-week trial at Maidstone Crown Court that ended on Tuesday 20 September 2016.

Williams was also convicted of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm and possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, while Emmet was found guilty of assault.

Both men were also found guilty of blackmail, robbery and possessing offensive weapons.
