FLAGSTAFF, AZ (CBS5) -

Flagstaff police said two people held a sawed-off shotgun on a man, forced him to use methamphetamine and ordered him to withdraw money from an ATM before they were arrested Wednesday.

The victim said Brandon Hoffman, 28, and Aaron Brown, 32, held a gun on him and forced him to go to his home, according to a Flagstaff Police Department report.

Once there, the suspects closed the blinds and doors, put on gloves and pointed the shotgun at his chest before realizing the victim's roommate was home and decided not to shoot him, according to the report.

He said the suspects also forced him to use methamphetamine to provide he wasn't working with the police, according to the report.

Search warrants were served that afternoon for each suspect's residence and detectives found a sawed-off shotgun with an obliterated serial number, ammunition and drug paraphernalia for marijuana and methamphetamine, according to the report.

Hoffman and Brown were booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also arrested was 24-year-old Kandice Crouch, who reportedly assaulted a police officer.
