Mantanona, Peter Schraff Cruz and Katrina Mantanona Cruz, all of Killeen, were ordered held on $100,000 bond each charged with aggravated robbery.

Killeen police, in an affidavit signed by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, reported officers were sent at about 7:30 p.m. Friday to an address in the 4900 block of Addie Drive after a caller reported several people had broken into a home while the resident was there and had demanded money.

When officers arrived the resident reported a group of people had broken into her home and demanded money that one said was owed her for work she did for the victim.

One of the attackers knocked at the victim's door but when the victim denied the attacker entry, she and her friends forced their way inside the house.

Police were able to identify five suspects and within less than an hour had all five in custody.
