The area around 44th and Raleigh was blocked off from about 1:00pm to 3:00pm Saturday while the SWAT team surrounded a house in the neighborhood.

It all stems from a 15 year old Amarillo teen who claims she was kidnapped in Amarillo two months ago and had been held at a home in Lubbock.

She says she managed to escape Friday night around 8:30 and then ran to the McDonald's at 50th and Quaker to call police.

Police say the teen told them overnight that she being held at a house near 44th and Raleigh. She also told police another girl was at the house but she wasn't sure if she lived there or was being held there.

Just before 3:00pm the SWAT team cleared the house and brought out three people. Police tell us one person was arrested on unrelated warrants and two others were just taken to the police station to be questioned.
