Two people were arrested for a home invasion in Utah last week during which police say the suspects threatened to “blow the brains out” of a 2-year-old child. The suspects also shot the homeowner and stabbed his wife.
The victims told police that a man and a woman wearing ski masks entered their home in Magna, Utah at about 5:30 a.m. The homeowner confronted the male suspect who then pointed a gun at him. The man then ran into the bedroom where his 2-year-old boy was.
“The male continued to aim the gun at him and the 2-year-old and kept asking him for the money and keys while going through the closet,” according to the affidavit.
The suspect reportedly said, “Do you think this is a joke? I am going to blow your son’s brains out.”
The suspect made a move toward the boy and the homeowner grabbed his gun. The gun “went off next to the right side of (the homeowner’s) head,” according to the affidavit.
The homeowner’s teenage son came into the room and held the suspect down. The female suspect then entered the room and shot the homeowner with a pellet gun.
The homeowner’s wife then got into a struggle with the second suspect. The female suspect stabbed her with a kitchen knife during the struggle.
The family was able to get the knife away from the female suspect and the police caught her trying to flee as they arrived.
Colton Skeet Wilkin-McBride, 27, and Monique Nichole Quintana Briceno, 33, were arrested and charged with numerous counts relating to the break-in.
