ELKVIEW, W.Va. (AP) - Two men have been accused of kidnapping a woman in Elkview.

WCHS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2dpG2OY) court documents show 58-year-old Randy George Vance and 23-year-old Joseph Robert Taylor were arrested Wednesday on kidnapping charges.

Records say deputies received a call from a man who said Vance and Taylor broke into his home and pulled a gun on him and his girlfriend. The man said both suspects fired a gun and removed the woman from the residence, beating her as they took her outside.

The man told deputies he was also struck by one of the suspects.

Upon leaving the home, documents show the suspects drove off with the woman in a vehicle. Deputies were able to locate them later.

They say the victim sustained minor injuries to her face and head.
