Two people are facing charges and third is still at large in a kidnapping and robbery on the campus of SIU-Edwardsville. At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, campus police said the victim had been set up by a friend.
Two other SIU-E students, 18 year old Jabreel Watson and 20 year old Shantel Rogers are charged with felony kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary. Police say they are still looking for a third suspect, an unidentified male.
On April 2nd an SIU-E student had reported being set upon outside his residence hall. He reported being forced into a car at gunpoint, driven to an ATM and forced to withdraw cash. He wasn't injured.
Police are hoping surveillance video from the ATM's camera will help in their search for the third suspect.

Attorneys for a former SIU Edwardsville student are asking the Illinois Supreme Court to uphold a lower court's decision to toss out their client's conviction of attempting to make a terroristic threat. The filing on behalf of Olutosin Oduwole comes more than a month after he was ordered freed by a state appellate court.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is appealing the overthrown conviction on behalf of Madison County prosecutors.
Oduwole's attorneys now argue there's no compelling reason for the state's high court to hear the case, and their client's six-year ordeal constitutes an abuse of prosecutorial power and a waste of judicial resources.
