Two Grove City women were arrested Nov. 22 on felony charges of aggravated burglary after they forced their way into a residence in the 2300 block of Suffolk Lane.
Officers responded just after 2 a.m. on a report of an assault with a rifle, according to reports.
A woman told police the two suspects had knocked on her door. When her son answered, the suspects forced their way in and one of them struck him in the face with a rifle, reports stated. She said the force of the blow caused the rifle's magazine to fall out and land on the ground.
The two women then left. The female victim said the women returned and knocked calmly on the door in an attempt to retrieve the magazine, reports stated. She said she did not answer them but called police instead.
The son confirmed the details of his mother's initial report. He refused medical treatment, reports stated. Officers located the magazine on the floor.
The two suspects were located, placed into custody on charges of aggravated burglary and taken to the Franklin County jail.
