ST PAULS, NC (WMBF) – A woman and a teenager have been arrested for allegedly kidnapping a St. Pauls man and his two children Monday, and demanding $10,000 in cash before leaving them in Fayetteville.

Tanisha Sha Na Ray, 27, of Fayetteville, was arrested on January 7 and charged with three counts of kidnapping and three counts of extortion. She is being held in the Robeson County Detention Center on a $105,000 secured bond.

Timothy Joshuar Campbell, Jr., 16, of Red Springs, was arrested on January 8 and charged with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of extortion, and felony conspiracy. He is being held at Robeson County Detention Center on a $150,000 secured bond.

Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealy confirmed to a Robeson County newspaper that the 40-year-old victim and his two children, aged 14 and 8, were found safe Monday morning, and were interviewed by the sheriff's office.

According to Sheriff Sealy, the victim and his children were getting ready for school when they were approached by a man with a gun, who forced them into their vehicle. A woman called to report the kidnapping after seeing the victim being held at gunpoint.

The kidnappers then contacted the victim's family and demanded that $10,000 in cash be dropped off in Cumberland County, Sealy said. There was no money exchanged.

The family was dropped off at an unknown location in Fayetteville, Sealy said. They contacted Fayetteville Police, who notified the Robeson County Sheriff's Office.

The State Bureau of Investigations is assisting the Robeson County Sheriff's Office in this case. Anyone with information can call the sheriff's office at 910-671-3100.

The investigation is continuing, according to Major Anthony Thompson, and more arrests are expected.
