A suspect in a kidnapping in Nevada was arrested in Vallejo on Saturday, police said. Jose Sanchez-Perez was arrested with the help of Vallejo police in an apartment building in downtown Vallejo around 9:30 p.m., according to police in Henderson, Nev. Sanchez-Perez, who is believed to be in his 20s, and two other Las Vegas men are suspected of abducting 17-year-old Melissa Duran from her Henderson home on Aug. 31 and demanding ransom from her family in exchange for her safe return, Henderson police said.

A fourth Las Vegas man is suspected of letting the other men use his car for the kidnapping. Henderson police tracked the suspects and the girl to an apartment in Las Vegas where the four men lived and rescued her on Sept. 1. Two of the Las Vegas men were arrested then while a third was arrested Wednesday. Henderson police said Sanchez-Perez worked for Duran’s father’s landscaping business for four years and was fired about four months ago.
