Two assault suspects triggered a two-hour standoff outside of a Kennewick home Friday afternoon.

Kennewick police received a tip that Seattle police were looking for Zachary T. Thompson, 28, for a warrant on third-degree assault.

As they were closing in on the Klamath Avenue home, they learned Thompson was with Phonetip J. Wilson, 27, who also had a warrant for her arrest. Wilson was wanted for fourth-degree assault in Seattle.

Officers surrounded the home around 1 p.m. and called in Tri-City Regional SWAT team members to help.

They were able to negotiate with Thompson and Wilson through the door and got them to come outside.

No one was hurt.
