Police arrest another suspect in Clayton County teen kidnapping

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Authorities have arrested another suspect in the kidnapping of a 14-year-old Clayton County girl last month.

According to the FBI, agents arrested Tony Maurice Graves, 28, of Atlanta, on Friday.

Graves faces federal kidnapping charges in connection with the abduction of Ayvani Hope Perez, according to a press release from the FBI.

Perez was taken at gunpoint from her home in Ellenwood on Sept. 17. She was dropped off at her aunt's home in Conyers about 36 hours later.

Another man, Wildrego Jackson, who had been previously arrested, was indicted Wednesday on kidnapping charges as well as a charge of discharge of a firearm during a crime of violence.

Investigators said they have linked Jackson to the getaway car and a cell phone used by the kidnappers.
