SALT LAKE CITY – Police say a father and son were paranoid after using methamphetamine when they lured a woman and her four teenage daughters to a Utah house and tied them up in a basement before the victims escaped.
Officers were searching Thursday for the suspects, who drove away after the women fought their way out of the Centerville home.
Police say 51-year-old Flint Wayne Harrison and 22-year-old Dereck James "DJ" Harrison had used the drug heavily for a few days and gotten the false idea that the mother had reported them to police.
Police say the woman and her daughters were close to Dereck Harrison and trusted him before he and his father beat them with a baseball bat in the basement.
The mother and one daughter were treated at a hospital and released.
