The six people involved in a what police call a ?violent home invasion? on Madison?s east side at the end of February made their initial court appearances Tuesday.
The incident, in which a pregnant woman was sexually assaulted, happened on Quincy Avenue around 4 a.m. on Feb. 23, according to a release. Police are not releasing the exact location in order to protect the 30-year-old man and woman who were attacked, officials said.
Eric Bass, 23, Kristopher Hughes, 20, and Michon Thomas, 22, broke into the home looking for money and attacked the couple, according to a criminal complaint. The 30-year-old man was pistol-whipped and beaten, while his wife was made to perform sexual acts.
The victims had guns pointed at their head and heard the robbers say ?someone is gonna die tonight,? according to the criminal complaint. During the robbery, the men took electronics, credit and debit cards and jewelry.
