Jodeci Jaquanis Johnson, 18, and John Antwoin Ways, 20, have been identified by investigators as suspects in the Feb. 6 incident.

Lt. Tim Thornton said all of the charges stem from one incident at a North Augusta home. Six people were kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint, he said.

Additional warrants for the suspects have been filed that stem from the February incident, according to a news release.

Investigators believe a third person assisted in the crimes, but that person was not identified.
