— Two people wanted in an assault and robbery at a Fayetteville motel last month have been arrested in California following an attempted kidnapping, police said Friday.

Police said a man was talking to a woman at the Econo Lodge at 1952 Cedar Creek Road on May 30 when he was hit on the back of the head and assaulted by a man. The woman and the assailant then grabbed the man's cellphone, laptop computer and wallet and drove off in his 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan, police said.

Last week, a woman and two men tried to abduct a woman in Bakersfield, Calif., but drove off when witnesses intervened, police said. The three were arrested during a subsequent traffic stop.

Glen E. Maynor Jr., 22, of Belle Chase Drive in Raeford, and Trichelle K. Burton, 18, of Fresno, Calif., have been charged with attempted first-degree murder, felony conspiracy, first-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a motor vehicle, financial card theft and financial card fraud in the Fayetteville incident.

Both are awaiting extradition to North Carolina.
