CHENEY, Wash. - Cheney Police arrested two men for burglary and assault early Tuesday morning.

Police said Landon P. Wakefield, 24 and Riley J. Wakefield, 25 attended a party in the 1000 block of W. Betz Road Monday night.

Officers said the Wakefields returned to the same apartment uninvited and broke in while the people who live there were sleeping.

One of the victims told police he woke up to discover the Wakefields ransacking the apartment. The victim said he was immediately attacked and choked.

Police said the two other people who live at the apartment heard the commotion and entered the fight, as the Wakefields each pulled a knife from their belts.

Officers said one of the victims received wounds on his hands. The other two victims backed away, as the suspects ran off.

Police tracked down the Wakefields at their home and arrested them both. They were booked into the Spokane County Jail on first degree burglary and first degree assault.
