CBS DC reports that two Maryland boys, ages 12 and 14, have been charged with kidnapping after they abducted a 9-year-old boy and his 8-year-old sister.
The suspects reportedly took the siblings from a playground and proceeded to carry them into a nearby barn while brandishing a knife, where they tied the children up with ropes and threatened to burn them. The suspects apparently fled after hearing other neighborhood kids looking for the siblings and were later arrested following identification by the victims and witnesses.
Both suspects are currently being held in a juvenile detention facility and are charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, arson, assault, reckless endangerment, burglary and trespassing.
