Three males, identified as gang members in a police report, were taken into custody Tuesday morning after they attacked people in a hallway at the Tulsa County Courthouse, officials said.

According to the report, surveillance footage showed Esteban Elizalde, 21, and two juveniles approaching the others in a threatening manner before assaulting them.

Elizalde and the other suspects came around a corner toward the victims in a side-by-side formation, the report says.

"The assault was most likely gang-related," an investigating officer wrote in his report.

During the course of the fight, several items in the lobby were knocked over and destroyed, the report says.

Elizalde was booked into Tulsa County jail, and the juveniles were transported to Tulsa Area Community Intervention Center for juveniles. Another male was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant.

Elizalde is being held on complaints of aggravated assault ($5,000 bond) and battery and destroying property ($2,000 bond). 

Elizalde was convicted in a 2011 burglary, among other offenses, court records show. He is currently on probation.
