Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested two men and accused them of holding two others captive for a week.

Andres Hernandez-Perez, 30, and Juan Guzman-Sanchez, 27, were both booked with two counts of second-degree kidnapping. Both remain in LPCC in lieu of $150,000 bond each.

Detectives went to Malapart Road Monday afternoon, where a man told them he had escaped from a nearby house where he and his brother had been held captive for a week. He said he believed one of the suspects had a gun, and threatened to use it if they left the home, according to jail records.

Deputies went to the house, and found two people in the house, and then found a victim chained up in the house, the documents state.

Neither the suspects nor the victims spoke English, but a concerned citizen translated for deputies, the documents state.
