A second man has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping and beating of three teens on Monday in Kalihi.

Police said the male teenagers, ages 16, 17 and 18, were at the bus stop when two men in their 20s drove up in a dark-colored pickup and threatened them unless they got into the truck bed.

Police said the teenagers were assaulted for two hours until they were able to escape and call police at about 10:50 p.m. 

On Tuesday, the victims identified one of the alleged kidnappers in a photo lineup. Officers arrested the man that evening at about 7:15 p.m. without incident. 

A second 24-year-old man was arrested at 1:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Kalihi police station. Both men were booked him on suspicion of three counts of kidnapping and remain in police custody, awaiting charges.
