A landlord in Albany, New York, is facing kidnapping charges after he allegedly tied up two of his tenants, covered their heads with pillowcases and left them at a snowy cemetery.

Albany Police arrested 48-year-old Shawn Douglas on Monday afternoon and charged him with second-degree kidnapping in connection with the incident on Sunday morning, according to the Albany Times-Union.

According to charging documents obtained by HuffPost, Douglas forcibly restrained a 32-year-old male tenant and a 21-year-old female tenant sometime between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Police said he used zip ties and tape to restrain them before covering their heads with pillowcases and forcing them into his vehicle. Police said Douglas then drove them at gunpoint to a cemetery where he left them in the snow.

Douglas had been frustrated as he was unable to evict the tenants due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Times-Union reported. New York state placed a moratorium on evictions for tenants who have experienced hardship due to the pandemic until May 1.
