Lufkin Police Rescue Kidnapping Victim

Toma Barlow
Angelina County Jail

Wednesday, just after 10pm, Lufkin Police received a call concerning a black male pointing a gun at a white female near the intersection of Davis and Setliff Streets, which is about 3 blocks south of Garrett Primary School. 

Lufkin police officers observed two men with a woman, with one of the men holding the woman by the arm.  As the officers approached, the two men began to walk away quickly and ignored repeated commands to stop.  The men were subsequently apprehended after ‘less lethal means’ were used.

Officers observed one of men throw a handgun down while fleeing.  The other man surrendered and was found to be in possession of two crack pipes.

The woman reported that the man with the gun, Toma Barlow, had entered the home of a mutual acquaintance where he pointed a gun at her and took her from the home at gunpoint, threatening to shoot and kill her if she tried to flee.

Barlow (pictured above) was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a felon, evading arrest, and outstanding misdemeanor warrants.  The second man, Marques J. Robinson (pictured below) was charged with evading arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.
