OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police on Sunday diffused a potentially volatile situation and rescued a man and a woman allegedly held captive in a basement of a southeast Oklahoma City house.
Terry Wallace, 48, and Jewell Miller, 48, allegedly had been held captive since at least Friday, police said Monday.
A call to 911 sent police to a house in the 600 block of SE 22 St., near I-35 about 11 a.m. Sunday, said M.Sgt. Gary Knight.
"Police had received an anonymous tip that there were men with guns, possibly going to go into some kind of battle with one another," said Knight.
"They found several cars that had people in them. There were several of them that they found that were armed," Knight said, adding that all those who were armed were taken into custody.
Booked into the Oklahoma County Jail were Daryl Whitebird, 43, on complaints of conspiracy to commit a felony, destruction of state property and possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony; Bryan Leslie Stout, 39, on complaints of kidnapping and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; Leon Lena, 34, on complaints including burglary, robbery, possession of drug paraphernalia, conspiracy to commit a felony, possession of a sawed-off shotgun and traffic violations, including driving under the influence; and Tiffany Williams, 23, on complaints of kidnapping and possession of an offensive weapon while committing a felony.
