Deputies were dispatched to the area where they came in contact with a male. The male reported

that he, along with another male, had been taken to a house located at 37 Ainsley Ave. in Wheelersburg. The male stated that both of them were tied down with zip ties, which prevented

them from leaving or moving. The male stated that several people beat on them, using their fist and kicking them. They were also stuck with a weapon. The male was transported, by ambulance, to the Southern Ohio Medical Center (S.O.M.C.) for treatment.


Detectives continued their investigation with the victim at S.O.M.C while deputies responded to an address on Martin Road in Wheelersburg, to speak with the second victim. The second victim

claimed that he was also held in the house and beaten for hours. EMS responded and transported the second victim to Southern Ohio Medical Center for treatment.


Sheriff Thoroughman stated that detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for the residence

located at 37 Ainsley Ave, Wheelersburg. A search was made of the residence and detectives

processed the crime scene, resulting in several items being collected as evidence. During the search of the residence two suspects showed up and they were detained without incident. A third suspect was observed driving onto Ainsley Ave. when he was stopped and detained without incident.
