A father and son were arrested on felony charges for kidnapping and beating a mother and her four teenage daughters in Centerville, Utah, following a massive manhunt.

Police arrested Dereck “D.J.” Harrison, 22, and Flint Wayne Harrison, 51, on charges that include aggravated kidnapping and possession of a controlled substance, the Associated Press reported.

The two allegedly entrapped the woman and her daughters – ages 13 through 18 – by inviting them to a Centerville home on Tuesday for a barbecue, KSL.com reported. The younger Harrison had known the family for several years. He often drove her daughters home from school and had dinner at their home.

“The motive appears to be retaliation on the mother. The exact reason is still under investigation,” Centerville police said in a prepared statement.
