Rutland home invasion suspects arrested

Rutland, Vermont - January 23, 2012

A violent home invasion in Rutland has two New York men facing charges.

Court papers say 26-year old Alexander Jiminez and 32-year-old Daniel Martinez-Pineda broke into an apartment on Cleveland Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday, wielding golf clubs and knives.

Police say they tied up the two tenants and severely beat the women, their pets and a male guest, while threatening to kill them and set them on fire. Police say the suspects stole a television, a play station, and prescription drugs.  Jiminez and Martinez-Pineda took off but were arrested. A third suspect is still on the loose.  

"They messed up her neck line and smashed her in the face and slapped her, so I guess they got her pretty good, which is unbelievable.  It's just sick and I cannot believe that those two girls got mugged -- robbed basically. They don't feel safe.  they're staying with me, and you know, I don't blame them. I wouldn't stay there either," said James Hodgdon, a relative of one of the victims.

Both Martinez-Pineda and Jiminez are being held on 200-thousand dollars bail.
