    4th Suspect Identified in Alleged Kidnapping
    Dyonte Smith, 19, wanted for the alleged kidnapping of five children in Willingboro, NJ.

    A fourth suspect has been identified in the alleged kidnapping of five children in New Jersey on July 17.

    Investigators name 19-year-old Dyonte Smith as the fourth person involved in the incident.

    Police say Smith, along with three other suspects (all of which have been arrested), approached a house on Rittenhouse Drive in Willingboro, N.J. and kidnapped five juveniles -- ranging in age from 11 to 15 -- who were sitting on the porch of the home.

    The suspects then took the kids to a house two doors down, physically assaulted them and taped up their hands, feet and mouths, according to investigators.

    The suspects are also accused of holding a knife to the neck of one of the victims and carrying another victim outside and tying him to a tree with a dog leash.

    One of the kids managed to escape and alert a parent.

    Police say the suspects ran away when they saw the parents coming.

    The other victims were able to escape, once the suspects fled.

    Police say none of the children suffered any life-threatening injuries.

    19-year-old Domorous White, 20-year-old Stephan Monk and a 17-year-old teen were arrested a few days after the alleged kidnapping.

    They are charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault.

    Anyone with information leading to Smith’s arrest is asked to call the Willingboro Police Department at 609-877-3001.
