Police find man who was carjacked, kidnapped from Gwinnett karaoke bar

By Isabel Hughes

The victim in a Sunday morning carjacking and abduction has been located and is safe, though the gunmen responsible for the man’s ordeal are still on the loose.

Shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, three men — one Hispanic man and two black men — confronted 21-year-old Neil Frasdilla in the parking lot of Luxor, a Duluth karaoke bar and restaurant, which is located on the 2400 block of Pleasant Hill Road, police said.

A witness at the bar told police that the men, who arrived in a “dark-colored, four-door passenger car” pointed a gun at Frasdilla and forced him to drive away in his white Acura TSX with the suspects inside.

The suspects, two of which had guns, and Frasdilla were last seen driving toward Pleasant Hill Road, though on Monday, police said Frasdilla had been found at his home, unharmed.

“Neil told the investigators that after he was kidnapped on Sunday morning, the suspects took all of his belongings,” police said. “After several hours, they dropped him off somewhere along (Highway) 316. As the (victim) started walking, he found his vehicle parked a short distance away.”

One of the suspects was described as wearing a black, red, and white striped shirt while another was wearing a mask; information about the third has not yet been released.

It is not immediately known whether Frasdilla knew the perpetrators or what their motive for the abduction was.

Police said detectives assigned to the case are “still sorting through the video evidence” and no surveillance videos or photos are currently being released.

The car will be processed for evidence.
