Arrests Made In Kidnapping Of 13-Year-Old Boy

Two New Bern men are under $1,000,000 bonds after deputies say they kidnapped a 13-year-old boy in the Bridgeton area.

Levon Blount and Ryshante Graham were arrested Sunday after lawmen say the two ran into the woods when approached by deputies. The two men were caught after an extensive air and ground search involving lawmen from three counties.

They are charged with first degree kidnapping and deputies say more charges are expected.

Deputies say the teenage boy was treated and released from CarolinaEast Medial Center.

    This kid got lucky. Chances are they would have killed him after they got the ransom.

    To what end were they kidnapping this boy? Did they want a ransom? Did they want to force him to join their gang? Were they planning to do something disgusting and sexual? In the end, it's good that the boy is safe and they are in jail. These two beasts should be locked up for a LONG time, and the Prison Guards need to tell EVERYONE on the block what they did when they are locked up, and let nature take it's course.... I'm sure kidnapping small boys will go over REALLY well with their fellow inmates...

    This is so pathetic...WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO KIDNAP A CHILD, A LITTLE BOY. I hope major charges be brought up on these NUT CAKES. Looking at the one on the right, someone got a good lick on him (WAY TO GO!). Go and check their facebook pages out....smh!
