Saudi Arabia pays $2 million bail in Mo. case

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Two men from Saudi Arabia are out of the Greene County jail after their country posted their $2 million bail.

The men, 21-year-old Rayan Mohammed A Alqabbaa and 27-year-old Ahmed Ayed A Alanazi, are charged with kidnapping a woman from a downtown Springfield nightclub and sexually assaulting her in June.

A cab driver notified police after becoming suspicious of how the men were treating the woman. Officers found her in an apartment crying, partially clothed and asking for help.

The county circuit clerk's office says the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wired the money to the office Tuesday. The Springfield News-Leaderreports the men must wear GPS ankle bracelets and their lawyer must keep their passports.

The men's attorneys have said surveillance video from the nightclub contradicts the woman's story.
