LAS VEGAS – Filipino Gary Casupang, 59, was arrested March 12 in a northwest Las Vegas neighborhood on charges of alleged 1st degree kidnapping, coercion, and extortion.

The alleged victim is 23-year-old Hannah Borkert.

The arrest report indicated that Borkert and Casupang, along with Borkert’s 11-month-old baby were driving to an unknown location to buy heroin. Borkert, however, reported to officers that they were going to buy Opana, a pain medication.

Casupang stayed in the car with the baby while Borkert was buying the drugs, according to the report.

But Borkert said Casupang became very angry and accused her of flirting with the drug dealer. He left the scene with Borkert’s child.

Capusang came back later, pulled a small handheld stun gun, and told her that he would tase her.

Borkert was able to run to take her baby from the vehicle.

She reportedly yelled during the struggle and two homeless people approached and assisted her.

Borkert called her mom to pick her and her son up but once they arrived home, they discovered smoke emitting from their house. A neighbor had a water hose attempting to put the fire out.

An arrest report says Casupang and Borkert have been dating for the last four months.

Borkert stated that she doesn’t consider Casupang as her boyfriend because he has been paying her for sex.

Casupang and Borkert also did not live together nor have any children together.

In an interview conducted by the Las Vegas Metro Police, Casupang admitted he brought Borkert with him to pick up drugs twice during the day.

Casupang did not admit to any involvement in the fire that erupted at Borkert’s residence.

He was arrested for coercion with force or threat.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 31 while a $400,000 bail has been set for one Capusang’s four charges.
