A suspect in the robbery and kidnapping of a woman at gunpoint at an Arlington ATM last month has been arrested in Georgia, Arlington police said Thursday.

Donald Moses, 18, was arrested Thursday and was in the Peach County Jail after Arlington police worked with the U.S. Marshals Service to track him down, police Sgt. Jeffrey Houston wrote in a news release.

His bail was set at $75,000. He faces charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, both felonies.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, WFAA reported, detectives tracked down Moses' mother, Lily Moses, who identified the man in a surveillance photo as her son. Lily Moses is an inmate in the Dallas County jail.

The woman was kidnapped at a Wells Fargo ATM in North Arlington on Jan. 14. In surveillance footage captured outside the bank in the 2000 block of North Collins Street, the man can be seen pointing a gun at a woman in her car, making her withdraw money and then forcing her to get into the trunk of the car, police said.

The man drove around for a couple of hours and stopped in Euless, police said. After he walked away from the car for a few minutes, the woman got out of the trunk and ran to a QuikTrip at South Industrial Boulevard and Texas 10 where she called police at 3:39 a.m.

Houston said detectives tracked down Moses thanks to multiple tips and information collected during the investigation.

Moses’ mug shot was not released Thursday because of the “possible need for photograph lineups,” Houston wrote.
