CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two brothers are in jail after police say they forced a woman into their car.

Charleston Police say Roland T. Walker, 37, threatened the woman with a realistic looking pistol. The incident happened between the 1300 and 1400-block of Washington Street West in Charleston.

The weapon the man allegedly showed ended up being a BB gun.

Police say Roland's brother, Noland F. Walker, 37, helped by opening the door and demanding the victim get inside the car.

According to the criminal complaint, the suspects told police the victim had stolen a television from Roland, and they wanted her to get it back.

After making several stops, the police pulled over the car and arrested the two men.

The brothers are both charged with kidnapping.
