WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two Wichita men have been charged with felonies after police say they stopped a car full of teens they suspected of trespassing, then held the teens at gunpoint.

Christopher Perry and Michael Morris have been charged with three felony counts of aggravated assault and three misdemeanor counts of criminal restraint, the Wichita Eagle reported.

Prosecutors say the incident happened around 2 a.m. May 30, when police were called to a disturbance. Police say the teens — ages 18, 17 and 15 — were driving through a west Wichita neighborhood when the two men spotted them. The men believed the teens had jumped a fence into a back yard of one of the men earlier in the evening, police said.

The men followed the teenagers, and one of them pulled his truck in front of the car to block it as the other man pointed a handgun at the teens and demanded identification, police said.
