— A Wilson man was arrested Thursday on charges he abducted two young brothers from a local day care center, police said.

Reginald Wilson, 27, of 1100 E. Vance St., was charged with two counts of abduction of children and was being held Friday in the Wilson County Jail under a $20,000 bond.

Police responded to Kidstown Child Care and Learning Center, at 301 S. Tarboro St., at about 3 p.m. Thursday in reference to a child abduction. Investigators determined that a man went into the facility and left with two brothers, ages 3 and 4.

Officers found Wilson and the boys in the area of Lamm Park and Coleman Street, police said. The boys were returned to their parents unharmed.

Police said Wilson knows the boys' parents but isn't related to them.
