Three men were booked into the Canyon County Jail on Monday after two people told Caldwell Police they had been attacked.

Police responded to a report of a disturbance at about 11:40 a.m. in the 600 block of East Galveston Street. When officers arrived, a 27-year-old man and a 50-year-old man said they had been beaten up by two men who fled in a car. The victims' injuries were non-life threatening, police said.

The victims gave a description of the car, officer found it and pulled it over near Linden Street and Montana Avenue. That's when police said three men ran from the car.

After a short pursuit, Justin Gahley, 25, of Nampa was captured, and the other men went into an apartment in the 2800 block of Montana. Police said Jonathan Wills, 27, of Caldwell was found in a bedroom and Joshua Alcoser, 21, of Nyssa, Ore., was located in the attic.

Two nearby elementary schools were alerted, and students were kept inside.

Wills is charged with battery, obstruction and delay, driving without privileges and a probation violation. Gahley is charged with battery, obstruction and delay and a probation violation. Alcoser is charged with obstruction and delay and a probation violation.

A woman at the apartment–Brianna Miller, 23, of Nampa–was cited on a charge of obstruction and delay, but was released.
