Brothers booked in beating

Two Orchard Mesa men were arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of burglary and assault.

Matthias Martin Brehm, 20, and Malachi Louis Brehm, 22, both of 2841 Morningside Court, are suspected of entering into a home in the 300 block of Hill Avenue early Sunday and assaulting a man with a baseball bat or a pipe. The victim was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, where doctors immediately performed surgery. The victim received a text message prior to being assaulted that said “We’re coming to get you,” but the victim texted back “you have the wrong person,” according to an arrest affidavit.

Man, 18 accused of assault

Roy L. Baker, 18, 3082 F 3/4 Road, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of felony assault of an elderly woman, who fell to the ground after being slapped, according to an arrest affidavit.

The victim is older than 60 years, according to the affidavit.

Stabbing suspects sought

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department seeks information about a stabbing last week in Clifton.

Deputies said an adult man was stabbed near 31 and E 1/2 roads after an attempted robbery around 3 p.m. on Nov. 3. The man was standing outside his vehicle on E 1/2 Road when he was approached by two men. The man was stabbed when he refused to give the men money.
