A man who claims he was running for his life ended up being held against his will at gunpoint in the South Valley on Tuesday.

According to the criminal complaint, James Quintana said he was running from a group of people trying to shoot him on Perry Road SW. He knocked on a window for help and ended up breaking it.

Police said the two people inside the home, Ruben Gonzalez and Roberto Zubia, demanded Quintana give them money or drugs to fix the window. They then allegedly dragged Quintana inside the home.

Zubia later called police to report a burglary, but after an officer took Quintana into his patrol car, he learned the man had been held against his will at gunpoint.

Both Gonzalez and Zubia face charges including kidnapping and aggravated assault.
