ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A couple who reported being carjacked by two teenage boys are accused of tracking down one of them the next day and abducting him at gunpoint.

Los Luna residents 37-year-old Juan Saavedra and 23-year-old Christal Holliday remain jailed after being arrested Friday on suspicion of kidnapping, battery with a deadly weapon and other charges.

Police say Saavedra and Holliday had an AK-47 semiautomatic rifle when they put the boy in their vehicle in Albuquerque before shooting him with a stun gun, tying him up, taking him to Los Luna, throwing him into a 5-foot-deep hole, threatening to kill him and then taking him back to Albuquerque, where he escaped.

Police said the boy was bleeding, covered with dirt and scratches and had marks on his wrists and ankles.
