Authorities on Thursday morning canceled an Amber Alert issued earlier in the day for a teenage boy who was reported to have been abducted at gunpoint from a west Topeka apartment building.
Two men were later arrested in connection with the incident, which remained under investigation.
Topeka police watch commander Lt. Chris Heaven said about 9:45 a.m. Thursday that the teenager, Shaquan Roy Mitchell, 16, and a suspect, Trevon Jaquemini Williams, 19, had been located and were "in good health." The Amber Alert was canceled after Mitchell had been located.
Williams and a second man, Montrel MacShawn Drayton, 19, were arrested in connection with aggravated burglary, police officials said Thursday afternoon.
On Thursday morning, authorities said Mitchell had been taken to police headquarters by an acquaintance, either a friend or family member.
It wasn't immediately known where Williams was located.
About 3:30 p.m. Thursday, police Lt. Jerry Monasmith issued a news release stating Williams and Drayton had been booked into the Shawnee County Jail in connection with the incident.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation about 6:41 a.m. Thursday issued an Amber Alert for Mitchell following a report that he had been abducted. The warning activated cellphones in the Topeka area.
A bulletin regarding the Amber Alert was heard minutes earlier on police radio frequencies.
Authorities said the incident occurred about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at an apartment at 1175 S.W. Woodhull. The residence is in the Woodhull Apartments complex, about two blocks northwest of S.W. Huntoon and Gage.
Authorities said two assailants, at least one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered the residence on S.W. Woodhull and were said to have taken Mitchell from the apartment at gunpoint.
Williams was identified early on in the investigation as one of the suspects. The second assailant wasn't immediately identified by law enforcement agencies.
The first word of Drayton's involvement in the case came Thursday afternoon, when Monasmith issued his news release.
Soon after the Amber Alert was issued before dawn, authorities said the two assailants were seen leaving on foot with the victim and a television set that was taken from the residence, which is located in a two-story building behind Gage Bowl just north of S.W. 12th Street.
Topeka police Lt. Manny Munoz said officers were sent about 12:30 a.m. Thursday to the address on Woodhull on a report of a burglary in progress.
The police investigation revealed the assailants left after brandishing a silver handgun and "ordering everyone on the ground," Munoz said.
Multiple police and Kansas Highway Patrol units were on the scene early Thursday. However, all of the officers abruptly left the area about 7 a.m.
Darrick Hobbs, 54, who lives in a first-floor unit at the Woodhull Apartments, said he was awakened early Thursday by a neighbor who said she had been robbed at gunpoint. Hobbs said he called 911 and saw police officers on the scene a short time later.
Then, about 6:40 a.m. Thursday, Hobbs was awakened again, this time by the Amber Alert notification.
"I'm concerned about the whole situation, because we're pretty close over here," Hobbs said after officers left the scene. "We try to look out for each other."
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call police detectives at (785) 368-9400 or Capital Area Crime Stoppers at (785) 234-0007.
