GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Glendale police detained two suspects following a home invasion Monday morning.

Police said they were looking for four suspects following a home invasion at about 4:45 a.m. near 57th and Missouri avenues.

Police said there were two adults home at the time and at least one was assaulted.

A homeowner called 911 to report someone possibly trying to break in, according to police. While on the line, the suspects forced their way into the home.

A man in the home was assaulted with a baseball bat. Both adults were treated at the scene.

The suspects, believed to be wearing masks, fled on foot and in a black Chevy Tahoe. The driver reportedly tried to ram a couple of police vehicles.

Police chased the Tahoe for a short time then called off the pursuit.

"When we engage a vehicle in any sort of pursuit, we have to weigh the risk to the community versus the apprehension of those persons and tonight we decided that we could always try to obtain these suspects later," Sgt. David Vidaure said.

Vidaure said the two suspects in custody are being booked into the Glendale City Jail. Police are not releasing their names at this time.

The incident is still under investigation.
