    The father and son accused of luring a woman and her four teenage daughters to a Utah house, kidnapping them and assaulting the mother, are in custody in Wyoming after a day-long manhunt, NBC News reported.

    Dereck "DJ" Harrison, 22, was arrested at about 10 p.m. Saturday night after the manhunt in the Half Moon Lake area, northeast of the town of Pinedale, Wyoming. His father, Flint Wayne Harrison, 51, surrendered to authorities in earlier Saturday.

    The Harrisons allegedly invited the mother and her daughters, aged between 13 and 18, to a home in Utah Tuesday, and tied them up with wire and duct tape, according to Centerville police said.

    The mother and daughters were assaulted with a baseball bat as they attempted to break free, Centerville police said. By the time they did escape, the suspects had already fled.
