LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- Two men face second degree kidnapping charges after deputies found a man chained inside a house in Lafayette Sunday night.

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office was called Malapart Road at about 10:30 p.m. that evening in reference to an alleged kidnapping.

A victim, who said he had escaped the house, said he and his brother had been held captive at gunpoint for a week.

Once inside the home, deputies found the suspect and another victim “bounded by the wrist with chain and secured with a padlock.”

The key to the padlock was inside one of the suspects’ bedrooms, according to the arrest affidavit.

Juan Guzman-Sanchez, 27, remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center this morning on a $150,000 bond.

Andres Hernandez-Perez, 30, also faces two counts of second degree kidnapping on a $150,000 bond.
