Phoenix police say 37-year-old Kendall Jamar Pride, 28-year-old Jason Shaffer Ellis and 24-year-old Dion Colter were booked into jail Sunday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and possession and use of a weapon.

At their initial court appearances Monday, Pride was ordered held without bail while bond was set at $75,000 apiece for Ellis and Colter.
