GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A SWAT team rescued a man from a Gresham apartment complex who said he had been held against his will for days.

Two were arrested Friday after police responded to an apartment on the 700 block of Southeast 193rd Avenue at 12:10 p.m.

Investigators said they received a tip about the situation that was determined to be credible.

Police believed a suspect involved in the case was potentially armed, so the SWAT team was activated to respond to the apartment Friday.

Once inside, police said a victim was located and he confirmed that he was being held against his will.

The victim did not require treatment at the hospital, according to officers.

The two suspects arrested have been identified as Whitney Engstrom and Christopher Torientino. Both are facing charges that include robbery and kidnapping, according to Gresham police.

A third suspect, 27-year-old Ashley Adams, was arrested Saturday and faces charges of kidnapping, robbery, theft and identity theft.

Police identified the victim as 34-year-old Michael Daugherty, of Portland, who is developmentally disabled.

Police say the suspects held him for two days while accessing his bank account.  Police say the investigation is ongoing and that more arrests are possible.
