ENID, Okla. – A Garfield County judge set the bond for 21-year-old Wesley Stuart for $50,000 on Thursday in connection to a violent home invasion last month in Enid.
Police say Stuart broke into his neighbor’s home on September 18 and attacked the resident with a pipe.
It was something that came as quite a shock to area residents.
“I couldn’t believe that a neighbor would break into neighbor’s house,” Cara Seal said. “I don’t know what they would do it for, what’s the purpose? I thought we had good neighbors.”
Court document reveal that Stuart left behind a trail of evidence for police.
Police say at the scene they recovered a hoodie and white shirt that belonged to Stuart, and they also found a cell phone that didn’t belong to the victim.
“That’s very, very crazy. I couldn’t imagine even taking your cell phone with you to rob a neighbor, or beat a neighbor up,” Seal said. “How could you leave something like that behind?”
Police say on the phone they found even more evidence pointing the finger at Stuart. There was a a picture of Stuart in a mask taken 15 minutes before the attack, and there was also a picture of Stuart’s Social Security card.
Stuart is charged with first-degree burglary and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. His bond hearing is scheduled for November 4.
