LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man and a woman were arrested after a SWAT team negotiated with barricaded subjects inside an apartment in southeast Las Vegas on Thursday.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, detectives were originally called to an apartment on Sunset Road near Eastern Avenue about 7:30 p.m. to follow up on a previous incident.

After no one answered to detectives, police were about to depart the complex when a second 911 call reported a woman being held against her will, according to Metro.

SWAT was then called to the scene, and, after hours of negotiation, two people were detained at about 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Police said another woman inside the apartment was not harmed.

Police were diverting traffic off of Sunset and onto McLeod Drive during the incident.
