ELLENWOOD, Ga. -

Police have identified two men they say they've arrested in connection with the abduction of a 14-year-old Georgia girl during a home invasion robbery.

Police in Georgia's Clayton County said Wednesday that 29-year-old Wildrego Jackson has been charged with conspiracy to kidnap after the teen was taken early Tuesday from her suburban Atlanta home.

Officials say 40-year-old Juan Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez, a Mexican national, has been arrested on immigration-related charges.

It was not immediately known if the two had lawyers.

Police have said two armed men broke into a family home in Ellenwood demanding money and jewelry, fatally shot the family's dog and took the girl from the house. The teen was found safe Wednesday.

Investigators have released sketches of two other suspects and say they remain at large.
