Police: New Mexico man kidnapped Arkansas wife

Posted: Updated:

DEMING, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a New Mexico man kidnapped his estranged wife from Arkansas, brought her to New Mexico, and then he and his father raped her.

The Deming Headlight reports (http://goo.gl/4JPYfV) that Jessie Hopper Jr. and Jessie Hopper Sr. were arrested Saturday after a dispatcher in Arkansas contacted New Mexico State Police about the missing woman's whereabouts. Authorities say AT&T located her cellular phone to a Deming to the younger Hopper's home.

Police say officers found the woman inside a bus on the property. She told authorities the men abducted her after contacting her on Thursday and brought her to New Mexico.

Both men face a number of charges including kidnapping, conspiracy, and aggravated criminal sexual penetration.

It was not known if they had attorneys.
