The two also refused to allow the victim and his teen daughter to leave their home, deputies said.

Ray Jackson “Tre” Welch III, 26, has been charged with second-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering, according to the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies looked Monday morning for Welch’s father, 55-year-old Ray Jackson “Jackie” Welch Jr., before he turned himself in on the same charges.

Father and son went to a home on Triple R Drive armed with a gun and brass knuckles and robbed a man of money and a television, according to deputies. The victim’s 16-year-old daughter was also at the home at the time of the crimes.

A spokeswoman with the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office said the two are charged with kidnapping because the victims were not allowed to leave the residence.
