Two home invasion suspects arraigned

MARQUETTE – Two suspects arrested Friday morning after a Marquette home invasion were arraigned Monday in Marquette County District Court.

Kyler Brock Arrieta, 25, who police said is from California but was living in Marquette with relatives, and Johnathan Daniel Roy, 25, of Marquette were both scheduled for a preliminary examination at 1 p.m. July 25.

Both are charged with home invasion, which is a 20-year felony, and a felony firearm offense punishable by up to two years incarceration. The pair were lodged in the Marquette County Jail, with bail set at $500,000 for each count.

At 6:43 a.m. Friday, Marquette City Police responded to a report of a home invasion in the western part of the city. Police said the suspects gained entry to a home through an unsecured door.

Police said the homeowner was at home at the time and was the victim of an alleged physical assault. The name of the homeowner has not been released by police. Police said he sought his own treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

One of the suspects allegedly brandished a firearm during the home invasion, according to a press release from city police. The homeowner provided police with a description of the pair and a suspect vehicle.

A short time later, police found a vehicle and suspects matching the description in the Orianna Preserve area, off Pioneer Road.

The two suspects were arrested without incident, the release stated.

Police said there appeared to be no prior connection between the suspects and the homeowner.

The investigation is continuing and additional charges may be issued.
