SALT LAKE CITY -- U.S. Marshals in Las Vegas arrested the final two suspects charged in the attack against a Salt Lake City man and his partner.

Agents arrested Ricky Peace and Lisa Aiono Friday. The two are part of a larger group charged with beating David Bell and Daniel Fair on the Fourth of July in 2008.

Members of the group claim they attacked the men because they thought Bell and Fair had kidnapped their children. However, Bell and Fair say they were only helping the kids during a party and think the attack happened because they are gay.

Bell was acquitted of kidnapping charges in September 2009.

Earlier this month, the Salt Lake City prosecutor filed charges against the 7 people believed to be involved in the beating.
