A suspect is behind bars after neighbors pinned him on the ground, after he allegedly broke into a home and threatened a woman and her children.

Kennewick Police responded to a disturbance at about 6 PM last night in the 1000 block of West 10th Avenue in Kennewick.

Officers found several neighbors holding down 18 year old, Ramiro Uritz.

Police say that the suspect was obviously high on drugs.

Uritz allegedly entered a ground level unlocked apartment, startling a woman and her children, and officials say he threatened to assault the family.

Witnesses say that the suspect then ran outside, where neighbors who heard the commotion, came to help and eventually pinned down the suspect until officers arrived.

Uritz was taken to trios for a medical clearance, and then booked into jail.
