A personal nightmare of mine.

The home invasion.

Arrests made in home invasion, assault

NEW BRAUNFELS — Two people were arrested and officers were searching for a third in connection with a stabbing Sunday night, the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday.

Investigators were unsure of the motive for the home invasion and assault in which four people kicked in the front door of a home in the 300 block of Riverbend, on the outskirts of New Braunfels, at about 11:10 p.m. Sunday night.

As a woman watched the front door, two men beat and stabbed Robert Ewing, 38, who was in the bedroom with his fiancee. Another intruder held a third occupant of the house at gunpoint, authorities said.

Ewing, with broken ribs, a collapsed lung and five stab wounds in the back and side, was in stable condition at University Hospital.

Deputies arrested Anton Rice, 17, of New Braunfels and a 16-year-old boy, also from New Braunfels. Both are charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated assault.

A female suspect was questioned and released, but charges are pending, said Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Kevin Jordan.

A warrant has been issued for Ryan Martin, 18, of New Braunfels, but he has not been found.
