Cattle prod used in break-in

A woman whose house was broken into Tuesday morning told police she was stabbed with a cattle prod during the burglary.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to the home in the 4100 block of North Arizona Street around 5:50 a.m. after receiving a 911 call from the 34-year-old woman, who said two men broke into her home while she was in her bedroom. The woman went to investigate a noise when she was confronted in the hallway.

The two men then ransacked the home for the next 30 minutes, according to Sheriff's Spokeswoman Trish Carter. Carter said the woman was not tied up or restrained but was threatened and stabbed with the cattle prod. Deputies at the scene said they observed a bruise and scratch on the woman.

The suspects stole a 47-inch Vizio flat screen television, a 32-inch Sony flat screen television, a 7-inch Ematic E-book touch screen, a Vizio Blu Ray player, a Vizio sound bar, a Nokia cell phone, a dual caliber air rifle and a shotgun.

One suspect is described as wearing a skull mask, black hooded sweater, black pants and winter gloves.

The second suspect is described as a man with blonde hair wearing glasses with a black bandanna across his face and a black hooded sweater.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Mohave County Sheriff's Office at (928) 753-0753 or Silent Witness at (928) 753-1234.
