LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Police say two suspects have been arrested in connection with last weekend's violence in downtown Louisville.

Shaquazz Allen, 18, and 19-year-old Tyrone Booker are charged with seven counts of first degree unlawful imprisonment, and one count each of fourth degree assault and third degree criminal mischief. 

Police say both men face charges stemming from an attack in which a woman was punched in the eye after she was dragged out from her car.

It happened when she, her fiancé and five children were stopped in their vehicle at First and Jefferson Streets.

Police arrested Allen at his home Friday evening, while officers picked Booker up on home incarceration.

Both were also arrested last Sunday after police they and two other accomplices held a woman at gunpoint at a Shawnee bus stop.

These arrests follow the arrest of 18-year-old Je'Rece M. Archie and a 17-year-old male juvenile, after police say they picked up a gun out of a trash can at the Big Four Bridge.
