TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police have identified two men arrested Sunday evening in an aggravated assault that happened Saturday night in the area of Camino Seco and Mary Drive in Tucson, according to Public Information Officer, Sgt. Pete Dugan of the Tucson Police Department. 

Dugan said 28-year-old Priciliano Gastelum and 34 year-old Jesus Rodriguez are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and kidnapping. 

He said the suspects, who live together, got into a fight Saturday at their home with two other men who had been staying with them. Gastelum pulled out a gun and robbed the men, according to police.

Dugan said police were flagged down Sunday morning by the two victims who were able to get out of the house.

TPD tracked down Rodriguez while he was driving in traffic and arrested him, according to Dugan. He said SWAT served warrants for an arrest of Gastelum at his home on Sunday afternoon and he surrendered to police peacefully. 

As officers were clearing the house they found possible explosives and a grenade. The Bomb Squad was called in and safely moved those items out of the home, police said.

We will have more information when it is available.
