Home invasion followed break-up, authorities said

A relationship that apparently went sour resulted in a home invasion Tuesday night, authorities said.

Around 11 p.m., a teenage boy and his adult friend entered a residence on the 6000 block of Kings Valley Road where the teen's 18-year-old ex-girlfriend lived, said sheriff's Commander Bill Steven.

The woman had a 20-year-old man from Crescent City visiting her who was confronted by the teen in the kitchen, Steven said.

Obscenities and punches were thrown at the man, who was then pushed through a sliding glass door, shattering it, Steven said.

The teen continued to try to hit the man until he armed himself with a fire extinguisher, Steven said.

While the altercation occurred, the teen's friend restrained the woman from intervening, Steven said.

Eventually, the owner of the residence kicked the two intruders out of the house and called authorities, Steven said.

"The two wrongdoers left in a vehicle," said Steven.

A short time later a vehicle was spotted on Angel Lane near one of the suspect's houses, Steven said.

Nathan Morse, 20, was pulled from the vehicle and arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, burglary, criminal conspiracy, battery and malicious mischief.

Authorities were also able to track down the teen suspect at a residence in Shangri La Trailer Park, Steven said.

The teen, 17, was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, burglary, criminal conspiracy and battery, and taken to juvenile hall, Steven said.

The man who was assaulted was treated for injuries at Sutter Coast Hospital and released, Steven said.
