Four men are behind bars this morning after car jacking a paraplegic man in January. The Liberal Police Department arrested 24 year old Jose Mauricio Gil of Dodge City, 19 year old Bobby Stensland of Dodge City, 27 year old Juan Garza of Garden City, and 27 year old Matthew Perez of Garden City. During the evening of January 10 police found the 34 year old paraplegic man on the ground in the 500 block of east Oak. The victim told officers he was at the taco stand in the 400 block of South Kansas when two men wearing bandanas covering their faces ordered the disabled man to drive while they held him at gun point. The men directed him to a field in the 500 block of East Oak where they pushed him out of the vehicle and drove away. The victim had to crawl through the field to the roadway to summon help. The victim’s vehicle was recovered in Finney County the next day. The four men were arrested between January 29 and March 1.
