HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Two men have been arrested on kidnapping charges.

WFSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/194bl6i ) that police responded to a report Monday night of a person abducted at gunpoint and a ransom demand phoned into the family.

Based on a description of the suspects and their car, Hartford police arrested 22-year-old Rubin Baez of Hartford and 18-year-old Rahda Charles of Manchester.

Baez and Charles were charged with kidnapping with a firearm and first-degree robbery.
