They want to talk to him about the violent kidnapping that happened inside a home near Simpson and Coltrane.

Michael Robinson is already sitting in jail for the crime, but deputies say there’s no way he acted alone in the beating.

Robinson is confined to a wheelchair.

Robinson allegedly told authorities he beat and robbed the victim because the victim put the moves on his girlfriend.

“There was a knife involved, the threat of life and robbery, and that's too far, you can't do that,” neighbor Jason Chambers said.

Chambers lives next door and was friends with Robinson.

Investigators went to his house, wanting to know if he helped in the kidnapping.

“I opened the door, and he said ‘we have a warrant’ and I said, ‘can I see the warrant?’” Chambers said.

Chambers was cleared.

He says he’s never seen Martinez.

“I would not have stood for that. I would've tried something to stop it,” Chambers said.

Deputies say the victim was already bruised and bloody when Martinez and Robinson allegedly took him to the convenience store to rob him.

Mark’s Short Stop owners told NewsChannel 4 they had no idea the crime happened.

Robinson is facing more charges because he’s a felon, and investigators say they found stolen weapons inside his home.

Martinez is wanted on two warrants for traffic offenses and obstructing a police officer.

We’re told the victim is doing okay.

The girlfriend who the fight centered around is in jail.

She’s awaiting extradition to Florida facing forgery charges.

Anyone with information on where Martinez might be should call the Logan County Sheriff’s Office (405)282-4100.
