After entering the suspect began to punch and kick the older woman in the face. The man grabbed the attacking woman and told the female victim to leave. That is when the attacking woman threatened the female victim and told her that she had a gun in her car and was going to get her. After the female victim left, the attacker began punching and kicking the man. She then kicked a television, puncturing a hole in the wall. The suspect took $250 from the residence and left.
