Two men abducted a woman and her 7-year old child, in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Warrensburg, Missouri.  They forced the woman to drive to an ATM, robbed her, threatened to rape her, threatened to kill her and her child, then dumped them on a deserted road in the cold.

Two suspects have been arrested:  23-year-old Alan E. Briscoe and 21-year-old Kevin A. Ratte.

From an article:
Two men approached the family, one with a gun, and forced the 27-year-old mother to drive them to an ATM with her child in tow. After getting their money, they ordered the woman out of the driver's seat. 
Charges claim 23-year-old Alan E. Briscoe put the woman in the passenger seat up front with him, and gave his 21-year-old accomplice, Kevin A. Ratte, the gun which Ratte kept pointed at the 7-year-old boy in the back seat of the woman's Grand Am. 
The accused kidnappers then took the mother and child down a country road. 
Police say along the way they threatened to rape the woman, then threatened to kill both her and her son. They eventually took the mother and child to a dead end and forced them to lie face down in a field, before driving off in her car. 
Charging documents say both men admitted to their involvement. They each face seven felony charges that include kidnapping, child kidnapping, first-degree robbery, stealing a motor vehicle and sexual misconduct.
