Men in Hend. Kidnapping Case on Immigration Hold

LAS VEGAS -- The two men arrested in the kidnapping of a Henderson teenager Saturday are each being held on $1 million bond. They also face a federal immigration hold, according to Henderson Detention Center records.

Alejandro Manuel Sanchez-Sanchez, 25, and Cesar Sanchez, 30, appeared in court Tuesday on charges that include first-degree kidnapping, extortion and child abuse.

They were arrested Saturday morning after 17-year-old Melissa Duran was abducted from her home Friday morning after she answered a knock at the door. According to police, Melissa's kidnappers made phone calls to her parents demanding money for her safe return.
