Ismael Bangs, Yvens Luclaise kidnapped boy, glued mouth shut

Police in Manchester, N.H., say two men held a 15-year-old boy at knifepoint, glued his lips shut and burned him while filming the incident with an iPod.

The men were arraigned Friday and held on $100,000 bail each.

Police found the teen naked under a bed in an apartment Friday. They noted his lips appeared to be glued shut and he had wounds to his arm. Police say 19-year-old Ismael Bangs allegedly burned a robber glove over the boy and let it drip onto him. He also allegedly used a lighter to heat a knife blade and applied it to the boy's shoulder.

Bangs and 25-year-old Yvens Luclaise were charged with kidnapping. Bangs also was charged with multiple counts of criminal threatening and assault. Luclaise was charged with criminal liability. (source)
