OGDEN, Utah – Four people were arrested on kidnapping and assault charges Saturday after they allegedly held a woman against her will and threatened her with sexual assault.

Lt. Chad Ledford, Ogden Police Department, said the four suspects and the victim were in a car together, and that at some point an argument began. The female victim feared for her life, and she got out of the car when it stopped at 2039 Quincy Avenue. The incident occurred around 10:30 p.m.

Ledford said two men chased the victim and took her forcefully into the residence the car had stopped in front of. All four suspects threatened to sexually assault the victim and kill her, police said. Neighbors heard the screaming, and they called 911.

Police responded and arrested the four suspects: 21-year-old Steven Beazer, 44-year-old DeWayne Dumas, 36-year-old Alisha Sandoval and 22-year-old Shannon Rose. All four were charged with kidnapping and assault.

Ledford said it is unclear what the initial argument was about, but he said it may have involved drugs.
