Two people have been arrested after a SWAT situation near Camino Seco and Mary Sunday afternoon.

Tucson Police and members of the SWAT team were investigating an aggravated assault that happened Saturday night.

A fight broke out between a group of people in the home.

Jesus Rodriguez and Priciliano Gastelum kidnapped two other people. One of the men pulled out a gun, threatened the other them and refused to let the victims leave. 

The two victims managed to escape Sunday morning and flagged down an officer.

Police found Gastelum during a traffic stop and arrested him.

A SWAT team swarmed the home and Rodriguez was still inside. He surrendered after a couple of hours.

Detectives found drugs and a number of weapons including a hand grenade.

The bomb squad took the grenade for inspection.
