There, one of the suspects pulled out a small handgun, which he pointed at the victim's head and in his mouth, the document stated.

The suspects also hit and kicked the boy, even "pulling out a portion of his hair and scalp, which caused bleeding."

The suspects are charged with one count of aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony; and either one count of aggravated assault, a second-degree felony, or one count of aggravated assault, a third-degree felony.
