CHELSEA (AP) — Two out-of-state teenagers accused of holding a man against his will are facing kidnapping charges.

Maine state police said Friday that 18-year-old Ricardo David Perry, of East Stroudsburg, Pa., and 19-year-old Eugene Charleston, of Bridgeport, Conn., were arrested and were being held without bail at the Kennebec County jail.

Lt. David Tripp told the Kennebec Journal the victim was in good condition and appeared to know Perry and Charleston. Tripp did not disclose the victim’s name or provide details about the possible relationship between him and the teens.

Police responded to a Chelsea home at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday after getting a call from the man, who said he was being held against his will.

When troopers arrived at the scene, they reached the man by phone, Tripp said. The man told police he thought the teens were armed.

Shortly afterward, the man ran out of the house followed by the two teens. Tripp said the teens were taken into custody following a brief chase.

Tripp would not comment on whether drugs or weapons were found in the home during a police search.

Police left the home with chairs covered in duct tape and rope. The investigation is ongoing.

It was unclear if the teens had lawyers. Telephone calls to officials at the jail and the sheriff’s office on Friday weren’t answered.
