Two Tulsa men are behind bars after assaulting a Tulsa homeowner and a 15-year-old boy.

Tulsa Police say 31-year-old Johnny Stewart and 22-year-old Phillip Haddon had gotten into a fight with the 15 year old earlier in the evening. When they spotted him just before 2 o'clock Thursday morning they started chasing him.

The boy ran into his own home near 6th and Owasso, and then ran out the back door when Stewart and Haddon followed him in. The boy escaped to a neighbor's house and called 911, but they again followed.

Police say Stewart and Haddon hit both the neighbor and the boy with a pool cue, but they were able to fight back until police arrived. One of the suspects was arrested immediately; the other was taken into custody a short time later after he was found hiding behind a bush.

Charges are pending.
