Thomas Beatty and Chivon Leon

Two Salina residents are in jail on charges that include aggravated kidnapping,aggravated battery,aggravated assault, aggravated robbery,and criminal restraint in an incident that apparently began sometime Friday in Reno County and ended in Salina.

25-year-old Thomas Beatty was arrested Friday, and 27-year-old Chivon Leon arrested Saturday in a case where a man who used to live in Salina, moved to Hutchinson and was taken against his will. He was beaten, and was eventually able to get away and contacted Salina Police. The victim was taken to Salina Regional Health Center and treated for injuries and released.

Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson tells the Hutch Post that investigators are still trying to piece together what happened but it appears the incident started in the city of Hutchinson and then moved out into the county, and eventually to Salina.

Salina Interim Police Chief Carson Mansfield said the case stems from a domestic issue.

    Chivon deserves to sit in jail and think about what she did this is not the first time it has happened

    • sam

      she has done it before and she needs to go to some classes and straighten up. She needs to quite hanging with the crowd she is kicking it with

      • She is scary!

        Anyone who uses the term “kicking it” needs to take some classes and straighten up also!

      • purplesmirk

        If this is the second time she has done something like this then the time for classes has come and gone. Its time to remove her from society for a long time.

      • retired

        Maybe “they” need to quit hanging around her.

      • heat

        yeah, classes will help

    • REason

    all you freaks saying “legalize drugs” look at these 2 and read this story. Nuff said.

    • Steve

      All you freaks who think it is perfectly fine for the federal government to have the power to control individual lives need to read the Constitution! Nuff said? Who says “nuff said” anymore?

    • RealSizzurpSippa

      Legalizing drugs….yes legalize weed. I’m assuming these good old folks are living that meth life. No need to legalize that ish.

      • rabblerouser

        cuz you all cant understand cause and effect. the laws are compounding the problem.

    • 44135

      NO ONE says legalize drugs, you idiot! They may say legalize marijuana, but no drugs….you’re a tool 67558…”nuff said” (drool coming from my mouth)

      • Duh

        Marijuana is a drug.. Just saying

        • dr. green thumb

          nope its a herb

        • Angelina

          Not a drug. Lol

        • wtf

          No more of a drug then acetaninophen or diphenhydramine wich is found in most sleep aides and pain reliever sold jus about everywhere to anybody.

        • Anonymouse

          So is sugar, caffiene, nicotine and alcohol…. Just saying

        • Country girl

          it is grown naturaly there for it is not a drug

      • scott

        Alcohol is a drug, nicotine is a drug should they be outlawed? They kill more people in the US in one year than pot or marijuana has in 10,000 years. I know you are going to say pot kills but you are wrong only people doing dumb stuff while on pot get killed same with alcohol though. No one has ever died from an overdose of marijuana. Can’t say that about alcohol.

    • dr. green thumb

      thats cuz it wasnt weed. if they were high on weed they would have been like f that guy lets go to taco bell…lol

  • lol @ this girl

    Honey…watching “Breaking Bad”…does not make you a bad a$$ or a gangster..get it together girl

  • Iseenit

    Two mad dogs needed to be put to sleep.

  • dog eat dog

    Where do I enroll for “How to stop Kidnapping People” class?

  • nazistatesofamerica

    I know for a fact they are both using meth. How many times do they have to be arrested for meth to know that. And i know for a fact that it wasn’t a domestic issue. They ganged up on the victim for taking there drug money. I say put them in prison or next time they will probably kill the next victim .

    • NI4NI

      If he stole their drug money, then he is not a victim, he is a criminal also and possibly deserved to get a beat down. Everyone knows, you don’t steal from meth heads. They are crazy!

    • purplesmirk

      Kinda hard to feel sorrow or pity for someone that puts themselves into a situation like that by committing a crime of their own.

    • sam

      yea she keeps asking everyone around Salina if they could loan her money or get her some meth……..

  • Jay

    Watch out for the white van without windows…

  • Truth sayer

    The dude looks like Shrek’s little brother!

  • Jimmy Russells

    I had the honor and pleasure of having a one night stand with Chivon when she was 23 and I was 15, back before she looked like a methed-out Jax Teller. From the looks of her, she’s gay now. Thank god I raised my standards. What was I thinking?
