RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Two more people have been charged in the kidnapping of a North Carolina prosecutor's father.

Federal authorities filed kidnapping charges Wednesday against Jakym Tibbs and a man listed as John Doe known by the nickname "Kirkwood Quan." Officials declined to say whether the two men are in custody.

Six other people were arrested last week following a late-night raid by the FBI on an Atlanta apartment. Rescued was Frank Arthur Janssen, a Wake Forest man whose daughter is an assistant district attorney in Wake County.

Authorities said the kidnappers made demands regarding Kelvin Melton, a high-ranking Bloods street gang member serving a life sentence in a North Carolina prison for a 2011 shooting. The victim's daughter, Colleen Janssen, prosecuted Melton.
