FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -- Two people from Flagler County are arrested on multiple charges after an overnight crime spree.
Sheriff's deputies say the crime spree started when Guiseppe Verdone, 22, and a juvenile female allegedly called for a Chinese food delivery to a vacant home on Bayside Drive in Palm Coast.
Detectives said Verdone and the girl called King's Palace, owned by Ming Gong, 43.
Gong, the owner of the restaurant, delivered the food to the home.
Detectives said when Gong arrived, Verdone and the girl pretended to be law enforcement officers and beat him, handcuffed him and placed him in the backseat of his own car.
Detectives say the two then drove off but then eventually pushed Gong from the moving vehicle on Palm Coast Parkway.
Investigators say the duo then drove north to St. Johns County where they allegedly committed an armed robbery.
The two were found in Liberty County, Ga., early Sunday morning.
Police tried to arrest Verdone and his companion but they led investigators on a car chase. The two were finally stopped in Hardeeville, S.C. They were arrested and are being held in the Japar County Detention Center in Ridgeland, S. C.
Flagler County Sheriff's deputies say Verdone has been arrested four times as an adult since 2010. He was also arrested four times as a juvenile.
Sheriff's deputies say Verdone and his accomplice are facing possible charges of kidnapping, aggravated battery, robbery and grand theft. The alleged crime spree is still under investigation and no formal charges have been filed in Flagler County.
The two are also expected to face charges in South Carolina and Georgia.
Investigators say Ming Gong is recovering from serious head injuries at UF Health in Jacksonville. He is listed in serious condition.
