'He could have shot me several times'


A Hattiesburg man says he was held at gunpoint and kidnapped while he was working in his yard.

Usually when Steve Kincade works in his yard on South 12th Avenue, he feels safe.

"It used to be real quiet," he says.

Until Thursday evening.

"I was just out here mowing the grass and he just asked for some water, and I went inside to get some water and he pulled on me," he recalls.

Kincade says a little after 6 p.m. Thursday, a black man, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, attempted to rob him with a 22-caliber handgun. The suspect forced Kincade into his home and began looking for money.

"Since I was cutting the grass, my wallet and everything was on the table in there and I went in there and I only had ten dollars," he says. "And he saw my ATM card and my wallet, and so he said, 'We need to take a ride.'"

The armed suspect forced Kincade to drive him to AmSouth on Broadway Drive.

"He didn't want cameras to see him, so we parked in that Broadway Inn or whatever it is," he says.

When Kincade got out of his car he was able to put his keys in his pocket. He was supposed to head over to the AmSouth bank. But instead he got about 30 to 40 feet away from the suspect and took off across the street. He made it to the Exxon station and called for help. But when he looked back, the suspect was gone.

He says he feels lucky: "Oh sure. He could have shot me several times."

During the course of the crime the suspect told Kincade that he was 18 years old, and that he had been shot in the leg. Kincade says the man showed him a scar to prove it.

If you have any information that may help find the suspect, call Hattiesburg police.

    It appears that both North Forrest High School coach Anthony Dillon and Lumberton High School coach Zach Jones have been telling their players pretty much the same about the teams’ season opener. “It’s a good thing we’re playing them on our home field,” Dillon said of his Eagles’ 7 p.m. showdown with the Panthers in Eatonville. “Hopefully, that can give us a little more motivation with the home crowd right here where you’re fighting to ...
