TULSA -- Two men were arrested Wednesday during a stolen vehicle investigation that led police to a barn.

Police said gang unit officers stopped a stolen vehicle just after 11 a.m. at a QuikTrip at 4900 South Harvard. Police said the two people inside the vehicle ran away, and one was caught.

Police said they believed the man who got away ran to the area of 4900 South Gary, and hid in a barn. Police set up a perimeter in the area.

While police set up a perimeter, a man identified as Jack Morris tried to access the gates to the barn property. Officers gave Morris commands to stop, but he became agitated and began to assault officers.

He was arrested and taken to a hospital for treatment. 

The man who was arrested in the stolen vehicle was identified as Antonio Luna. The other person inside the vehicle escaped and police are following up on information as to where he might be.
