KINGMAN - A violent July 4 home invasion allegedly organized by the victims' roommate in Bullhead City led the Mohave County Grand Jury to indict Joshua Blaine Saddler on nine felony counts Thursday, including three for kidnapping, two for armed robbery, three for aggravated assault and one for first-degree burglary.

Saddler, 24, and Brandon Lee Harcourt, 20, allegedly dressed all in black, covered their faces with ski masks and entered a home in the 1600 block of Lynn Drive at about 6:30 a.m.

Sleeping inside were Matthew Lee Pritchard, 20, his 19-year-old brother and his brother's 17-year-old girlfriend.

Harcourt was armed with a gun and Saddler carried a baseball bat, according to Bullhead City police.

Saddler reportedly struck Pritchard in the head with a bat before the three victims were tied up. Another female roommate, Sandra "Santa" Luisa Luhan, 22, also was tied up. Her four-year-old daughter was left alone, according to Bullhead City Police Department spokeswoman Emily Fromelt.

The men then allegedly stole electronics for cash.

Luhan, said Fromelt, was the ringleader. She allegedly set up the robbery of her roommates and had herself tied up so it would appear she also was a victim.

According to Fromelt, the three evenly split the cash made from selling the stolen electronics.

Harcourt was arrested in early October and Saddler on Oct. 25. Both men face identical charges. Luhan has not been captured and police continue to search for her.

Pritchard sustained a serious skull fracture from the blow to the head and was taken by air ambulance to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment. He has since recovered, according to Fromelt.

In a separate incident, Saddler was arrested in March 2011 during a drug sting set up by the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team.

Saddler was reportedly the chauffer for a Bullhead City drug dealer who was tricked into selling methamphetamine to an undercover officer. Saddler was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor warrants.

His arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 12 before Judge Steven Conn.

Also indicted by the Grand Jury were:

• Nathan S. Larson, one count of aggravated driving a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and one count of aggravated driving a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor with an alcohol concentration of .08 or more.

what gives you the right to judge a person that you nothing about we all make mistakes in life.i do agree the face tattoos are a little much.but that gives you no right to profile him as a kid whos life is over.i pray for people like you who judge others by there appearance and the two others that you say have a chance...look a little deeper

Young Mr Saddler is an example of a person who's life is basically over. Face tattoos like a prison lifer? At 24? I'm sure he's been inside more than a few times already. May as well just leave him locked up.

W/o knowing the other two's history...they may still have a chance to turn it around.

Yes, appearances DO count.
