FAYETTEVILLE -- A man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges he kidnapped and tried to rob a couple at their home.

Lentonio Marcell Jenner, 25, of Rogers was charged with aggravated residential burglary, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, battery and terroristic threatening. He was at the Washington County Detention Center with bonds of $51,000 Friday.

Police say Jenner walked up to Jerry and Glenda Moore's house on River Meadows Drive, took out a gun and threatened the couple. He forced them to get in their vehicle to drive him to their bank for money, according to a police report.

Jerry Moore had a gun, fought with Jenner and shot him in the leg, police said. Jenner was pushed out of the Moores' vehicle and later arrested at a hospital.

The couple didn't know Jenner, police said.

Jenner also faces a charge of aggravated robbery related to a bank robbery.

Police say Jenner and another man walked into the Arvest Bank at 1113 Garland Ave. on Jan. 3, brandished guns, demanded money and fled with $13,615. Police have said the pair are among four people who robbed the bank.

Jenner has a court hearing set Dec. 11 for all the charges, according to the prosecutor's office.
