OGDEN, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A screaming woman caused a scene in an Ogden neighborhood on May 17 at about
10:30 p.m.

"My wife told me she thought she heard someone scream and that was the reason I looked out and I saw police cars," said Conrad Pons.

Lt. Chad Ledford of the Ogden Police Department says a woman sitting in a car with four others felt threatened.  The woman opened her door and began to run when the car stopped near 2039 Quincy Avenue.

"We heard, 'Don't kill me' from the front yard and the back yard," said Amadeo Ocampo.

Several neighbors peered out their windows and watched the situation escalate.

Ledford says Steven Beazer and Dewayne Dumas grabbed the victim and began dragging her toward 2039 Quincy Avenue.  The victim fought back and as a result Alisha Sandoval and Shannon Rose helped to pull the victim into the house.

Ledford says once inside the home the four threatened to sexually assault and kill the victim, but phone calls made by concerned neighbors alerted police to the area.

Officers waited 15 minutes before the suspects would open up, according to Ledford.

They found the frightened victim and the suspects.

The victim told police she was assaulted over a property dispute.  The four suspects say it was caused by a drug deal.

Police say the victim in this story did the right thing.  She screamed to draw attention to herself before her alleged kidnappers could isolate her.

The suspects are charged with kidnapping and assault.  The vicitm was released at the scene.
