34 year old William Howard and 25 year old Trisha Switzler are facing numerous charges in the case.

The suspects allegedly then drove the victim to a bank to withdraw money, which was closed.

The two are currently in the Mesa County Jail and face several charges including aggravated robbery and second degree kidnapping.
