WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – Two teenagers are in the Seminole County jail accused of kidnapping a man in a Walmart parking lot and taking him on a ride at gunpoint.

A trip to the grocery store would take 28-year-old Jardin Delman on another trip that would include being duct taped.

Early Monday morning, Seminole County deputies responded to a robbery and kidnapping. Delman reported that around 12:30 a.m. two men armed with handguns confronted him in the parking lot of Walmart Neighborhood Market on Red Bug Lake Road.

The men demanded the Delman's wallet and car keys and then forced him into the backseat of his black 2011 Mercedes-Benz. The pair then drove the stolen vehicle to a nearby bank and forced the victim to withdraw $240 from his account.

The men then drove to a residential care facility, Impower, at 3800 Dike Road in Winter Park. Once there, they duct taped Delman's eyes and hands, placed him in the trunk of the vehicle and drove around for several hours.

Shortly after 4 a.m., the men returned to the residential care facility, removed Delman from the trunk, placed him in a rolling chair and locked him in the bathroom. The men then fled in the stolen Mercedes-Benz.

Two other men who live in the facility were able to free Delman and called 911. He did not sustain any physical injuries.

Deputies in the area quickly spotted the stolen vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. The driver, James Burgado, 18, of Winter Park, was taken into custody. The passenger, Jayland Harrison, 18, of Winter Park, fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later by an SCSO K-9 Unit.

Burgado and Harrison were charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, carjacking and assault. They were booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on no bond, but leaving shoppers questioning their safety at their neighborhood market.

"For something like that to happen to someone, that's scary," said shopper Steven Huff.

"You wouldn't think that you would need to be aware of your surroundings like that," said shopper Nicole Small.

The pair are scheduled to be in court for their first appearance hearing at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

A look at the Seminole County Clerk's records shows Harrison was arrested just days ago for shoplifting from the mall. He quickly bonded out.
