Jones and Neal are then accused of taking McCrackin's 2011 red Lexus, driving her to several banks and demanding she provide $10,000 for Capone's release.

A video posted to Twitter showed Neal being arrested by police in Inglewood, Cal.

In a weird string of events, three suspects have been indicted on charges of kidnapping an actress and actor in Los Angeles past year, and holding them for ransom. They allegedly stripped Capone and kept him in a bathtub for 30 hours without food.

In a grand jury indictment that was unsealed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Keith Andre Stewart, Johntae Jones and Amber Neal were collectively charged with 17 felony counts, including kidnapping, assault with a firearm, grand theft, mayhem, conspiracy and possession for sale of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

But now a story even more shocking has emerged, revealing the woman was allegedly involved in the kidnapping of two Los Angeles actors.

Neal, along with Stewart allegedly forced McCrackin write a check for $10,000 to secure Capone's release and drove her to a bank to make the transaction.

Doubts over North Korea's intentions have deepened amid reports that it is continuing to produce fissile material for weapons. Japanese defense ministry officials were not available for immediate comment.

In the indictment obtained by NBC, it says at one point during the alleged kidnapping, Capone tried to help McCrackin, but was "beat, punched, and kicked" for doing so.

Next the three alleged kidnappers reportedly placed black hoods over the victims' heads and drove them to a home belonging to Jones.

Initially, people criticized the officers for aiming their guns at an unarmed woman whose hands were in the air, but prosecutors confirmed Tuesday that the woman is actually the final defendant in the kidnapping case. He was being held on $2.08 million bail and faces a maximum possible sentence of life in state prison without parole.

McCrackin was then dropped off at her home, where she was able to contact police.

In a twist, Neal drew widespread support after a video showing her being arrested went viral.

Jones and Neal were being held on $1m bail each and Stewart was being held on more than $2m bail, according to prosecutors. All three were scheduled to be in court for a pretrial hearing July 23.
