KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff's detectives say a little girl was kicked and a man was struck multiple times with a crowbar in a violent home burglary April 19.

Arrested on Thursday following an investigation were David Victor Tindle, 23, and 18-year-old Roy Allan Durham, both of Kingman.

That Saturday, Tindle, Durham and an unknown third man allegedly entered a home in the 3500 block of Martin Lane at about 5 p.m., according to Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter.

Tindle allegedly kicked the girl "out of his way" before he assaulted a 23-year-old man who was in the home, striking him with a crowbar while Durham and the third man joined in, said Carter. The men allegedly stole money from the victim's wallet and reportedly left in a red Ford Ranger.

The man was treated and later released from Kingman Regional Medical Center with four lacerations to his head, said Carter. The child was apparently OK.

Tindle and Durham were arrested at about 2 p.m. Thursday when deputies spotted the men in the area of Northern Avenue and Stockton Hill Road and conducted a traffic stop. They were taken into custody without incident.

Tindle faces three charges of aggravated assault - on a minor, enter residence and with a deadly instrument, along with burglary, all felonies.

Durham was arrested on felony charges of burglary and aggravated assault - enter residence.

Heck, you don't need LE to tell you how to secure your home.

There are many sites specifically addressing these issues (not the ones who just want to sell you an alarm system).

Lock your doors, use high quality locks and deadbolts. Use a security strikeplate mounted with 3" screws into the house framing. If you want to leave doors open for ventilation, then invest in a solid properly mounted security door.

Drill and pin windows so they can only be opened part way for ventilation. Install a foot operated deadlatch on sliding doors or put a length of dowel in the track . Different holes can drilled or different length dowels can allow venting (same for sliding windows). Trim plantings away from windows and side doors. Install motion activated security lights.

There are even silly sounding things that can be effective. Get a canned gas air horn or a loud whistle. You'd be amazed how that can startle someone lurking around and alert others in the neighborhood. Plus, there is no chance of someone accidentally being killed. Continue using it after the perps leave and wake everyone up to see whats going on.

I didn't mention so many peoples favorite of "get a gun". That is not suitable in all situation/homes and up to the individual.

@ ROBERT GREEN It would be nice if the KPD or MCSD would chime in and alert the public as to want they can be doing to help prevent these. Even if to slow them down.

I think that if "they" want to get in they will. The club and other deterrence will stop the criminals with a conscience but not the ones without. The "ones" that need drug money are probably the worst although I don't know the exact statistics. Maybe the KPD or MCSD will comment on this article.

According to FBI statistics, There is a forced entry burglary every 28 seconds in the US, although 78% are done with no one at home! I put the Club stop on my doors that should help. I hope.
