A 17-year-old who punched a woman in the stomach during a home burglary was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke Thursday.
Tori Davone Golden was arrested on Feb. 8 by Killeen police at his home. He told police that he was involved in the burglary of a 66-year-old woman's home on Feb. 4, according to an affidavit for arrest.
On Feb. 4 around 8 p.m., Killeen police arrived at the 2900 block of Wisteria Lane after receiving a call about a home invasion in which the homeowner was assaulted. When officers arrived, they saw a broken window, and found that a landscape brick was thrown through it.
The homeowner was hiding in a bathroom closet when police entered the house. She told police that while she called 911, one of the two men who broke into her home punched her in the stomach and took her cellphone from her, according to the affidavit for arrest.
Golden and the other man stole several items that belonged to the woman, according to the affidavit for arrest, including an iPhone and a computer.
Police noticed a neighbor with a surveillance camera, and obtained footage that showed a "distinctive vehicle" drive up and down the street, stop near the woman's house and get out of the car.
Two days later, Killeen police saw Golden driving that same "distinctive vehicle" and pulled him over. They noticed that he looked similarly to the man they saw on surveillance footage, and went to his house on Feb. 8.
After arresting Golden at his home, he told police during a video interview that he was one of the two men who was involved in the home invasion, and said he left with the victim's property, according to the affidavit.
Golden was in the Bell County Jail as of 5 p.m. Thursday, held on a $100,000 bond.
In an unrelated case, Charles Edward McElveen was arraigned on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was held in the Bell County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
