PHOENIX -- Phoenix police have arrested three teens suspected of breaking into a home on Wednesday night.

Arryck Blanton, 18, has been charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault, burglary and auto theft. Kasey Phelps, 18, and a 17-year-old male are also facing charges of armed robbery, kidnapping, burglary, and auto theft.

Authorities said a 45-year-old woman was at her home in the area of 15800 S. 12th Place when there was a knock at the door.

The woman first decided not to answer the door, but a voice yelled her name and claimed to have the woman’s daughter.

The woman went to look outside when three white men, two of whom had guns, forced their way inside. The men, who did not have the daughter, assaulted the woman and tied her to a chair.

The suspects then stole several items from the house, including the woman’s dark blue 2001 Jaguar with the license plate “POSSBLE.”

The woman was eventually able to free herself and ran to her neighbor’s house for help.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said the victim's property has since been recovered. He also said one of the suspects was acquainted with the victim's daughter.
