Three women and a man were reportedly held captive in their Elkhart apartment for five days.

Elkhart Police say someone went to officers at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday to report that she had been held against her will and that there were others still being held captive. She only was able to get freed when the captor allowed her to go to the store.

When officers arrived at the apartment on the 400 block of West Franklin Street, a suspect was spotted fleeing the area. He was caught and identified as 31-year-old Derrick Glass of Elkhart. He was allegedly found with a handgun believed to have been used in the incident.

Investigators found that the four victims were threatened with a handgun and two women were found battered. One of the females went to Elkhart General Hospital while the other refused treatment.

Glass has been charged by police with four counts of criminal confinement and two counts of battery.
