Three gunmen wearing face masks pretended to be U.S. Marshals during a home invasion in Arizona. The fake feds allegedly beat one of the attacker’s wives and mothers-in-law with a baseball bat.
The fake law enforcement raid took place early Wednesday morning in Golden Valley, Arizona, when three armed men in camouflage and masks arrived at a house and demanded to be allowed entry, sources revealed. information from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. The case was apparently linked to a domestic dispute where Humberto Perez, 60, enlisted the help of Mark Hutchins, 35, and Jason Wortman, 46, to fight back against his ex-wife. All three are currently facing burglary and aggravated assault charges.
During the raid, the gunmen had a rifle, a shotgun, two handguns and a baseball bat. The people inside the house refused to let the attackers into their house unless they showed their police credentials. The gunmen then removed a screen door and broke down the door to the house. Once inside the house, Perez took his son to another room and then used the bat to beat his ex-wife and stepmother, the sheriff’s office statement said. Shortly after the physical assault began, the other two gunmen had to restrain Perez. The three then left the scene.
Shortly after the fake raid, authorities tracked Hutchins and Wortman to a house where they also found the weapons, masks and camouflage clothing. Sheriff’s investigators requested the assistance of the FBI’s Criminal Apprehensions Team to locate Perez who was in Las Vegas.
The investigation found that a month before the assault, Perez had been kicked out of the house and placed on a protective order for alleged domestic violence. Perez recruited Hutchins and Wortman claiming he needed to retrieve some items and that his wife’s new boyfriend was physically abusive towards her disabled son, the statement from the sheriff’s office revealed.
