LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto on Friday announced two Las Vegas bail bondsmen and the son of one of those men have been indicted by a Clark County grand jury.

John Kevin McCabe, 61, Charles McChesney, 48, and John Kevin McCabe Jr., 22, received a 34-count indictment Friday. Charges include kidnapping, robbery, burglary, assault and home invasion, among other felonies.

Metro police arrested John Kevin McCabe and McChesney in May. The bail bondsmen are accused of assaulting and extorting money and property from clients.

It's alleged that in 2010, John Kevin McCabe charged more than $14,000 to the credit cards of a woman who had hired him to post bail for her. When the charges were reversed, John Kevin McCabe allegedly kidnapped the woman from her room at Budget Suites and held her in his vehicle, demanding money and personal property.

It's also alleged John Kevin McCabe forced the woman to sign personal checks naming him as payee and compelled her to give him her debit card and PIN number, which he used to withdraw money from her bank accounts.

The indictment further alleges that in January 2011, the three defendants broke down a client's door and held her and her three young children at gunpoint. They allegedly took the woman's laptop, video game console and vehicle.

The indictment details two more alleged kidnappings, one of which includes an alleged sexual assault by John Kevin McCabe.

John Kevin McCabe is additionally accused of having been in possession of methamphetamine in 2013.

An arraignment has been set for Sept. 23 at 9:30 a.m.
