Officers obtained de­scriptions of the su­spects who ran into a nearby house. At approximately 2:19 a.­m., police executed a search warrant at a residence on West­wood Drive where two men were arrested without inc­ident. At this point in the investigation it is believed that the victim and the suspects are known to one another.
