EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Two students accused of kidnapping and torturing a man with hot cookies are no longer welcome back on campus at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, at least for now.
The school's police chief, Regina Hays, has notified sophomore Jordan Sallis and junior Rosario James to stay away as the face charges of kidnapping, robbery and battery.
Authorities say three men went to James' house November Second to buy marijuana, but two of the men grabbed the drugs and fled, leaving the third behind. That's when the suspects allegedly held that man and tortured him to press him into finding money for the stolen drugs.
The victim later managed to escape.
