An 18-year-old Sun City man has been arrested after he was captured by one of the victims in a home burglary.

Sgt. Bert Anzini with the Surprise Police Department said Ivan Sanchez got into the home through an unsecured rear sliding glass door early Sunday morning.

Anzini said the victims woke up to Sanchez in their master bedroom threatening them with a handgun he got inside the home.

Anzini said one of the victims confronted Sanchez while the other victim went to get children sleeping in the home and call police.

When police arrived, Sanchez was detained.

Police said Sanchez had minor injuries. None of the victims were harmed.

Sanchez was booked into Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail on two counts of kidnapping, aggravated assault and burglary in the first-degree.
