A state judge indicted two individuals who were nabbed last week after allegedly having kidnapped an immigrant, the state Attorney General’s office said.

The authorities said Juan David and Jorge Alan, no ages reported, were indicted for the Aug. 17 incident reportedly occurred in the Colonia Independencia area.

According to the report, a person notified the police about an individual who had his hands tied and was asking for help.

State police officers were deployed to the scene.

The agency said the victim had arrived in the city in order to cross the border.

However, the suspects presumably took the victim to a residence.

The suspects allegedly took the immigrant’s smartphone and called his relatives to demand cash for his release.

The police found the suspects at the scene. The judge decided to keep the suspects in prison during trial and gave prosecutors six months to close the investigation.
