His 17-year-old accomplice was also taken into custody on the same charges. Although both were charged with the same crime, only Michael Maxwell was held on $51,000 bond.
According to police, a group of young men swarmed the house trying to steal any and all valuables. the men all jumped out of a 2004 gold Chevy Malibu. Although the residents of the home were outnumbered, they successfully defended their home. Michael Maxwell was kicked, punched, and struck with a stun gun during the attempted robbery.
