Police arrested the young man after they were called to a home at one in the morning May 15th. Although Maxwell suffered the most, he wasn’t the only person to try to steal from the home. 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. The other men ran for cover when they saw Maxwell getting the life kicked out of him.

Despite having interviewed the victims-turned-defenders, police haven’t said if the residents know any of the would be robbers. Currently the case is still being investigated.
