Raymond Cuny, 32, was charged Wednesday morning with first-degree kidnapping and two counts of second-degree burglary. A court clerk says Cuny is being held in the Pennington County Jail without bond.

Cuny took the young boy hostage Tuesday evening and locked himself in Rapid City home. A special response team forced entry into the home and rescued the child around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. No officers were injured, and the child was returned unharmed to his family.

The Pennington County sheriff said Cuny had two active felony warrants prior to the incident.

A trial date has not been set yet for Cuny.
