PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities have arrested the two remaining suspects who they say kidnapped and tortured a jewelry store worker before dumping her in a cemetery.

Law enforcement agents say 26-year-old Basil Buie and 35-year-old Salahudin Shaheed were arrested Thursday in Philadelphia. A third suspect was arrested in South Carolina six days after the April 4 abduction.

Authorities say the men abducted the 53-year-old woman in a parking garage after she left work near Philadelphia’s Jewelers Row. The woman was beaten, shocked with a stun gun and bound while the men demanded to know a code to the store’s safe.

The trio dumped her at a cemetery, but returned to demand the code again.

The victim was treated at a hospital and released.

It’s unclear if the suspects have attorneys who could comment.
