Rose attempted to break and enter into a pickup with a mounted camper while the owner was still inside at 56th Street and Spring Creek Circle. The owner of the pickup, in order to stop the robbery, began driving away until Rose was forced to lose grip of the driver’s door, according to court records.

Thompson is charged with assaulting a minor using a metal slag hammer and breaking into a resident’s home in the 500 block of North Steele in Cushing.
