Laconia police: Man kidnapped couple at gunpoint, kept husband after letting woman go

LACONIA — Police have arrested a man who allegedly kidnapped a married couple at gunpoint on Tuesday.

David Bickford, 22, of Laconia has been charged with two counts of kidnapping, and two counts of criminal threatening after victims reported that he held a man and woman at gunpoint and forced them to walk to their residence.

The female victim reported that she convinced the man with the gun to let her go, but that her husband was still in captivity when she spoke with officers at Union Avenue.

While officers were investigating the case, a call from the Laconia Spa convenience store about a disturbance led to the capture of the suspect.

Bickford will be arraigned Wednesday afternoon.
