DURHAM, N.C. — Durham police investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding two men involved in a kidnapping and larceny last weekend.

Police said the incident happened about 11 a.m. Saturday, when a man stopped at Biscuitville on 1806 Holloway St. He went inside the restaurant but left his sport utility vehicle running with a 4-year-old child inside.

While the driver was ordering, two men got into the SUV and drove away. One of the men realized the child was in the vehicle and stopped. They put the child out of the car, unharmed, near the intersection of Raynor and Liberty streets.

The SUV, a black 2007 Chrysler Aspen with a North Carolina plate XVV 2735, has not been found.

The men were described as in their 20s. One man was wearing black pants and a gray sweatshirt.
