PHOENIX – A Tuba City man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for kidnapping.

The sentencing, announced by the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Arizona, was imposed on 40 year-old  Al Shonnie Ben by U.S. District Judge Douglas L. Rayes.  Ben had previously pleaded guilty to kidnapping.

 The investigation revealed that on Sept. 7, 2014, Ben, a member of the Navajo Nation, using a knife, kidnapped and assaulted three victims, also members of the Navajo Nation, resulting in serious and substantial bodily injuries to the respective victims. 

The U.S. Attorney's office says the investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Navajo Nation Department of Public Safety. 

Tuba City is located about 50 miles from the eastern entrance to Grand Canyon National Park.
