Man Ends Up Dead When He, and His Friends, Break into His Ex-Girlfriend's House on Valentine's Day!
One man is dead and two are injured after their plan to break into a woman's home led to a bloody Valentine's Day.
Police say that 25-year-old Johnathon Skaggs and three other suspects broke into Skaggs’s ex-girlfriend's house and attacked the woman and her boyfriend. It happened at 12:49 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14 in the 1400 block of Carment Street in Burton, Michigan.
The men attacked the ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend but had no idea that these two weren't going down without a fight. The couple fought back against the three intruders using their fists and weapons in their reach. When the melee ended, Skaggs, who had been stabbed multiple times in his chest, lay dead. The other intruders fled the scene but were later apprehended.
Burton Police Chief Brian Ross says that the Skaggs and the ex-girlfriend have a child together and that child was at the residence during the attack.
The attack, according to Ross, stemmed from Skaggs being jealous that his ex-girlfriend had moved on with another man.
“I think through this pandemic we see that the violent nature of crimes has gone up a little bit. Our actual crime stats were going down. It just seems like the violent nature is up a little bit,” Ross said.
The suspects, who had also been injured, were treated at a local hospital then, remanded into police custody.
Listen, the first rule of fighting in the hood, and suburbs as well, is to NEVER go to someone's house. You never know what they have inside waiting on you.
