FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Three people have been arrested in Flagstaff in connection with an unusual armed robbery and kidnapping case.

Flagstaff police say the victim told officers he was held at gunpoint by two men Wednesday.

The man says he was forced to use methamphetamine and ordered to take about $40 from his bank account.

The victim says his captors took him to his home and pointed a sawed-off shotgun at his chest.

He says they decided against killing him when they realized his roommate was home.

Police say 28-year-old Brandon Hoffman and 32-year-old Aaron Brown are being held on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They say 24-year-old Kandyce Crouch is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault of a police officer.
