DeKalb County, AL (WDEF) DeKalb County deputies arrest a father and son; Bobby Dowdy Senior and Junior for robbery and kidnapping.

Officials say the two took the victim at gunpoint and took his cash and other valuables while they drove around.

The victim told authorities he thought they were going to kill him, but then they told him what he could do to redeem himself to them.

The victim was released, but says the suspects continued to threaten him.

The sheriff expects there to be more charges.

He's glad this didn't turn into a homicide, but says that it got pretty close.
