LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) - Two men have been arrested after a violent attack and robbery in Longmont on Tuesday morning.
Jeff Satur with Longmont police said two men forced their way into the victim's home after he answered the door.
"The suspects immediately started beating the victim with their hands, the blunt end of a screw driver and a motorcycle part found in the home," Satur said in a statement. "The victim was also strangled at one point during the assault and came close to losing consciousness."
Satur said the victim was able to break free and retrieved a gun. The suspects fled with the victim's wallet, driver's license and credit cards.
The victim sustained injuries to his face and lacerations on his head. He was treated at the Longmont United Hospital and later released.
"The victim indicated he was a member of the Sons of Silence and told investigating officers one of the suspects was former member of the group, but had been kicked out," Satur said.
The Sons of Silence is a motorcycle gang.
A Longmont police detective who is familiar with motorcycle gangs told his fellow investigators he was familiar with one of the suspects and said he lived in Milliken. With the help of the Milliken Police Department officers were able to locate and arrest the two suspects. They were allegedly found with items stolen from the victim's home.
The suspects have been identified as Stanley B. Glade, 37, and Justin W. Jeske, 39. They were arrested for attempted first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, aggravated robbery and felony menacing.
