LURAY, Nov. 12 — On Sunday, the Luray Police Department released a report on social media stating that two Hopewell men were arrested following an abduction of an adult female from the parking lot of Luray Caverns.

“Luray Police Department responded to the Luray Caverns parking lot in regards to reports of an adult female being abducted and taken against her will by the use of force,” the report stated. “A juvenile female was also also involved in this incident and not held against her will.”

The report stated that “two males wearing ski masks forced the adult female into a vehicle and drove off.” A 911 call was placed by the victim to the Page County Emergency Communications Center. From that call, authorities were able to “ping” her location through the cell phone. Luray Police were lead to Mechanic Street, where they apprehended one suspect and located the victim.

A deputy with the Page County Sheriff’s Office arrested a second suspect without incident near Bixler’s Ferry Road “a short while later.” The victims were treated for minor injuries.

Travis Matthew Hogan and Sean Gregory Jarratt, both of Hopewell, Va., were arrested for felony abduction and child endangerment. In addition, Hogan faces potential charges for unlawful wounding during the commission of a felony, misdemeanor destruction of property and domestic assault and battery. Jarratt could also face charges on assault and battery and wearing a mask to conceal identity. Charges are pending arraignment in court.

“At this time all information obtained by law enforcement indicates this was an ongoing domestic situation and is an isolated incident,” the social media report by LPD stated. “There is no threat to the general public. More information will be provided as soon it becomes available and is allowed to be released.”

“All departments responded swiftly for a quick resolution,” stated Luray Police Chief C.S. “Bow” Cook. “I would like to thank the Officers of Luray Police Department, Page County Sheriff’s Office, and the staff of the Page County Emergency Communications Center, Page County Fire-EMS, and the information provided by citizens.”
