RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The FBI is offering up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest of two men suspected in the kidnapping of a North Carolina prosecutor's father.

The FBI said Wednesday they are seeking Jakym Camel Tibbs and Quantavious Thompson, also known by the nickname "Kirkwood Quan." The agency says the two should be considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities say six other people are accused in the kidnapping 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.
