Two men who allegedly helped stage the October kidnapping of a Davenport woman have been arrested.

Jeremy David Garvin, 22, of 1020 Valley View Dr., Marion, was arrested Tuesday. He made an initial appearance Wednesday in Scott County Circuit Court and was charged with first-degree kidnapping, assault causing serious injury, conspiracy to commit a felony and first-degree arson.

He remained in the Scott County Jail Thursday evening on a $200,000 bond.

Troy Andrew Williams, 33, address unknown, was arrested Monday and charged with conspiracy to commit a felony. Records did not indicate a court date for Mr. Williams, who was released from jail Monday after posting 10 percent of a $5,000 bond.

The victim, Brittany Hamilton, 28, of Davenport, sustained a single gunshot wound to the leg during the Oct. 8 incident. She was treated at an area hospital, police said, and released.

Police said Ms. Hamilton's former boyfriend, Brian Anthony Williams, 36, of Davenport, allegedly conspired with Mr. Garvin, Mr. Williams and two others to kidnap Ms. Hamiltonfrom her resident in the 6000 block of Hillandale Road in Davenport.

"She was physically removed from her residence and driven to a remote location in Davenport, where she was shot and left in a ditch," states an affidavit filed by Davenport Police Officer Richard Voy.

Records state the men then drove to the home of her new boyfriend in the 100 block of West 14th Street in Davenport and doused the residence with four to five gallons of gasoline before setting it on fire.

Five residents, including an infant, were asleep inside the home at the time, the affidavit states, but no one was injured.

An arrest warrant was issued Oct. 26 for Brian Anthony Williams, who was not in the Scott County Jail as of Thursday evening. Police have not released the names of other individuals believed to be involved.
