JIM BENEMANN: Detectives from the Adams County Sheriff's Office arrested two men after a carjacking and attempted kidnapping on I-25. It happened Tuesday night near 70th Avenue. Sheriff's Office says a pursuit ended with a crash. Two men got out of the wreckage, tried carjacking passing drivers. One of the suspects, Dominic Perea, was able to stop a driver and allegedly took them hostage. Tried getting away but a deputy was able to break the glass of the car and, with the help of a passing Denver cop and a citizen, subdued the suspect and rescued the hostage. The other suspect, Joseph Wiley, escaped by jumping into the bed of a passing pickup truck.
