Police: Pair used a baseball bat to rob occupants of Boise home

October 9, 2013 

— A man and a woman are facing felony charges after police say they forced their way into a Boise home and attacked the people inside with a baseball bat.

Robert Rex Morris, 40, and Delah Ann Riedner, 43, broke into the northwest Boise home Monday night after a dispute over a skateboard, occupants of the house told officers.

Witnesses say Morris threatened the people inside the home with a baseball bat, then used the bat during a fight with three of the occupants.

Riedner allegedly followed Morris into the house and also got into a fight with one of the people inside. The pair then took the skateboard from the victims by force, police said.

Officers found the suspects at a nearby home and arrested them.

Morris has been charged with felony counts of robbery and aggravated assault, as well as three misdemeanor burglary charges and misdemeanor unlawful entry. Riedner faces a felony robbery charge and misdemeanor battery and unlawful entry charges. Both were booked into the Ada County Jail on Monday night.
