The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Two men were arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated robbery and abduction after they allegedlykidnapped two brothers and held them four hours in a Walnut Hill apartment.

        Police charged Brian Andrew Wan, 22, of Decatur, Ga., and Anthony Rodriques,25, of the 2000 block of Florence Avenue in Walnut Hills. The incident allegedly took place in an apartment in the 2300 block of Concord Avenue late Tuesday.

        The two abductees told police they went to visit a friend at the Concord Avenue address and were confronted by two men who forced them into an apartment at gunpoint, made them remove their clothes, and bound and gagged them with duct tape.

        The victims also were stuck with hypodermic needles and splashed with bleach, police said.

        When the victims were released, they contacted police and the suspects were arrested at the Concord Avenue apartment at 5 a.m. Wednesday.
