Two brothers were allegedly abducted by two male suspects in Fayetteville, North Carolina late Monday night, according to police.

The two boys aged six and nine were playing outside of their home when two men in a red, four-door pickup truck pulled up and kidnapped them, WRAL reported.

The boys “were playing outside of their residence along the 5600 block of Monks Walk Court when the suspects pulled up in front of their residence and abducted the juveniles. The juveniles stated that they were then transported a short distance away from their residence and dropped off in the area of the Circle K near Methodist College on Ramsey Street. The juveniles were unharmed and transported home by officers,” according to a Fayetteville Police Department press release.

The first suspect was described as a bald white, or hispanic male in all black clothes. The second suspect was described as a white male, wearing all black in a ski mask, according to the release. (RELATED: Two Civilians Reportedly Stop An Attempted Abduction In Philadelphia)
