LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — A teenager has been identified as a suspect in a burglary in Lee’s Summit last Thursday, Dec. 11, in which the homeowner stabbed the teen’s alleged accomplice in the neck.
Police arrested James Jones, 26, as he was being treated at the hospital for a stab wound. James was charged in Jackson County Court with 1st degree burglary and bond was set at $25,000.
Now, Christian Olguin-Todd, 17, of Independence, Mo., is also charged and in jail on $25,000 bond.
At approximately 8:00 p.m that night, officers with the Lee’s Summit Police Department were called to the 400 block of NW Ambersham Drive on the report of a burglary that had just occurred.
When officers arrived the man told them he had been home with his wife and child when he heard loud knocking at his front door, followed by a muffled bang from the rear of his home. The man says he was coming out of an upstairs bedroom when he saw two men enter the home from the garage area and begin to come upstairs. As the suspects came upstairs, the man confronted the men and stabbed one of them in the neck. The suspects then fled the home and left in a vehicle.
Police say James told them they chose the house because they thought no one was home at the time.
