A Charleston man is behind bars after police said he duct taped his mother to a chair and stole her personal belongings.

Joshua Holbert has been charged with kidnapping and second degree robbery.

Police said they responded to an incident at a house on Hardman Drive early Wednesday morning.

The victim's mother, Patricia Holbert, told police her son came to her house and demanded money from her, according to the criminal complaint.

When she refused, Holbert duct taped her hands and torso to a chair in the bedroom.

He then stole her debit card and cash before leaving the house, police said.

Holbert is in the South Central Regional Jail.  He will be arraigned later this morning.
