Written by WBTA STAFF on December 22, 2017
Members of the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Mount Morris woman following a violent incident on Route 39 in the Town of Castile on Sunday evening.
Zoraida RODRIGUEZ, age 30, has been charged with Kidnapping in the 2nd Degree, Robbery in the 1st Degree, and Assault in the 2nd Degree, following her alleged involvement in which a 28 year old farm worker was abducted and beaten.
The investigation revealed that RODRIGUEZ along with several other suspects “lured” the victim out of his residence around 10 PM Sunday evening, at which time he was pistol whipped, beaten, and robbed of his cell phone and money. He was driven around for approximately 30 minutes before he was able to escape after the suspects had stopped roadside in the Town of Nunda, Livingston County.
The victim was able to flee into a field and sought assistance. The victim sustained non-life threatening head and facial injuries.
RODRIGUEZ was arraigned in the Town of Gainesville Court at which time bail was set at $250,000 cash or $500,000 bond.
Sheriff Greg Rudolph says,
“The arrest of Zoraida Rodriguez is just the beginning in resolving this case. The investigation is ongoing as more information is being developed into the identities of the other suspects and additional arrests are forthcoming. Anyone with information, please contact the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office at 585-786-8989 or the Confidential Tip Line at 585-786-8965.”
