LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two Lubbock teens are behind bars after the alleged sexual assault of two minors.

Police arrested 18-year-old Theodes Shells and 19-year-old Joshua Willis after an angry mob confronted the two men at a central Lubbock apartment complex. Police say two 12-year-old girls were reported missing on Tuesday. Their families located them Wednesday near 17th and Avenue R. One of the girls said they were held against their will and sexually assaulted.

One of the suspects pulled out a pellet gun in self defense, but an angry family member pulled out a real gun. Police managed to get the crowd under control without incident.
