Arizona authorities arrested two men believed responsible for kidnaping, beating and stabbing an elderly La Canada Flintridge woman July 8, Glendale police said.
Arizona Highway Patrol officers seized Paul E. Terry, 19, and Randall J. Countryman, 18, both of Arizona, on suspicion of possessing a stolen vehicle July 14. The men were seen driving the 1988 Cadillac Seville taken from Eloise Purdy, 77, who survived the attack, said Sgt. Dean Durand, spokesman for the Glendale Police Department.
Apprehended on Highway
Officers arrested the two men along Interstate 10, 100 miles west of Phoenix, Durand said. They are being held in a Phoenix jail on $3,425 bail each, Durand said.
Glendale authorities will seek to extradite the suspects, Durand said.
The men fit the descriptions of Purdy's assailants, who introduced themselves to her as brothers Paul and Randy Robertson, Durand said.
