(13WHAM) Rochester, N.Y. - It all began around 9:30 Monday night when police say two people broke into a home on Geneva Street. Police say the suspects threatened all three people inside with guns.
One person was able to escape and call 911. Negotiators tried to coax the suspects out of the house, but they did not initially respond.
After about four hours one of the suspects and the two remaining hostages came out of the home. Police had to go in and search the home before they were able to take the other suspect into custody.
The incident startled some neighbors. "People on the street were notified of the event through a notification system that we have and we asked them to just stay in place," said Captain John Corbelli of the RPD.
All three hostages are said to be doing fine--no injuries--just shaken up. Police have not released the names of the suspects or any charges they may face.
Their investigation continues.
