FERNDALE, Mich. (WXYZ) — Two people have been charged with kidnapping a Ferndale High School student earlier this week from a gas station.

According to police, a 16-year-old girl was getting gas on Wednesday around 11 a.m. when she was going from the school to an off-campus education site.

Police said the girl was forcibly taken at gunpoint while at the gas station near Pinecrest Drive and Eight Mile Road.

Her friends were quick to notice she didn't know up to the other classes, and knew something was wrong. They contacted her mother, who contacted Ferndale police.

Police worked with the FBI to quickly determine the location of the victim, and she was recovered around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the same day she was taken.

Two suspects were arrested. On Wednesday, Kahlil Floyd and Jessica Quick, both 44 years old and from Ferndale, were arraigned.

Floyd was charged with eight counts of felony firearm, two counts of armed robbery, one count of torture, one count of unlawful imprisonment and four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was denied bond.

Quick was charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of accessory after the fact for armed robbery and unlawful imprisonment. She was given a $1 million cash or surety bond.

Both are scheduled to appear back in court on Nov. 29.

Police did say this appears to be a random act and the victim was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. They believe there is no threat to the public.
