Three Florida Men Arrested for Kidnapping, Beating, Holding Man For Ransom

Three Florida men, Marcos Caraballo, Dylan Telleria, and Alexis Torres III are in the Orange County Jail after they allegedly kidnapped another man and beat him with a hammer, and two-by-four, then threatened to kill him if they didn’t receive a $500 ransom.

According to the arrest affidavit, on November 26th, Orange County deputies responded to 1646 Bindu Street in east Orlando in reference to a possible kidnapping and extortion.

The victim’s girlfriend told deputies her boyfriend’s roommate, Marcos Caraballo, sent her a text message demanding she send $500, or he would kill her boyfriend. She also received a photo of her boyfriend tied up inside the residence, bleeding. 

Caraballo demanded she sends the money to his friend, Dylan Telleria, through Cash App. 

“In fear for her boyfriend’s safety and well-being, she sent $93 to that account to free her boyfriend until she could come up with the remainder,” the affidavit stated. 

When Orange County deputies arrived at the home, a neighbor told them she saw people inside the home put a gun to the victim’s head and then took the victim back inside before deputies arrived.

The Orange County SWAT Team arrived at the scene, and the arrestees went without a gunfight. The victim was taken to the hospital with a cut over his eye and bruises all over his body. 

The victim was interviewed by detectives and stated he was told to come over and hang out with his friend Telleria. When he arrived, he was beaten up with a two-by-four, a hammer, and a cord by the three suspects and a fourth man he only knows as “Chrome.”

He said during the ordeal, Caraballo pointed a gun at him and demanded $500 cash. When he told them he didn’t have it, Caraballo contacted the victim’s girlfriend for the money. 

When Detectives attempted to interview Caraballo, he refused to speak to detectives. Not a problem for detectives. With this many people involved, the odds are good somebody will spill their guts. The detectives then interviewed Torres, who provided details of the crime, waived his rights, and “provided incriminating information about all the suspects’ involvement in this incident.”

Caraballo and Torres were transported to the big house and charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, kidnapping, and extortion.
