Bondsmen capture wrong person
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police have charged two bounty hunters with assaulting a teenage girl after apparently breaking into the wrong house.
Ali Barume, 27, and Jerry Roby, 31, were looking Wednesday night for a woman who had skipped bail when they knocked on the door of Frenchelle Williams-Marsh, 16.
Williams-Marsh and her 15-year-old brother were home alone and wouldn't let the men in. The youths began calling their mother, relatives and 911 for help and grabbed kitchen knives for self-defense. In the ensuing altercation, the men used pepper spray and handcuffed the girl.
Family members demanded Friday that police investigate to see if any other laws were broken.
