A Kansas sheriff's department says it's investigating after one of its deputies was kidnapped and sexually assaulted.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Department says the deputy was abducted late Friday from a parking lot as she headed into work at the detention center in Olathe. It says the deputy, who has been with the department for about six months, did not know her abductors and was not in uniform at the time.

The department says the deputy was released about two hours later in Lee's Summit, Missouri.

Local station KCTV reports William Luth, 24, and Brady Newman Caddell are each charged with kidnapping, criminal sodomy, and two counts of rape. Both men are being held on $1 million bonds.

Investigators released video of the car involved in the crimes against the twenty-something female deputy -- seeking tips -- and that's what led to the arrests.
