ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities say they've arrested another suspect in the abduction of a suburban Atlanta teen.

The FBI and Clayton County police say they arrested 28-year-old Tony Maurice Graves on Friday.

Graves was indicted Wednesday along with another suspect, 29-year-old Wildrego Jackson, who was arrested the day after the kidnapping last month.

The two face federal charges of conspiracy to kidnap and discharge of a firearm during a violent crime.

A judge signed an order Tuesday saying Graves would be represented by a public defender. His bond hearing has been set for Friday.

Authorities say armed men broke into the family's home in Ellendale early in the morning and took Ayvani Perez at gunpoint. About 36 hours later, she was dropped off safe at her aunt's home in Conyers.
