BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two Buffalo men were arrested following a home invasion during which two victims were tied up on Minnesota Avenue in Buffalo Tuesday, police said.
Wesley Bonner, 25 and Marcie Gue, 28, were charged with a long rap sheet after allegedly breaking into a home on the 500 block of Minnesota Avenue and forcibly stealing an unopened safe, two cell phones, a purse and more items and cash. Buffalo police say the men were armed with handguns, demanded cash and jewelery and tied up two of the home’s occupants.
A female victim was also allegedly injured after being struck on the head with the butt of a gun.
Bonner and Gue are each charged with robbery, burglary, unlawful imprisonment and criminal possession of stolen property. Each charge is a felony and all but the possession charge is in the first degree.
Police say Bonner was out on bail for a gun arrest that took place in Buffalo in May.
Police recovered the unopened safe near the home. Bonner and Gue were apprehended by officers from the Ferry-Filmore and Northeast districts as well as SWAT team officers.
