NORWALK - Two men accused of kidnapping and robbery were arraigned today.

Westport police say Andrew Frank and Peter Ferraro Jr. offered the victim a ride at the Mobil gas station on East Avenue, then held him against his will in a car at knife point.

Authorities believe Ferraro was driving the car and pulled a knife on the victim. Frank's attorney claims his client got out of the car before Ferraro stole the victim's ATM cards and PIN number.

Police say two women were initially in the car, but got out with Frank. They have not been charged.

Ferraro and Frank were arraigned on kidnapping and robbery charges today in Norwalk Superior Court. Ferraro also faces credit card theft, illegal use of a credit card and larceny charges.

Both men are due back in court next month.
