KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - An elderly couple is recovering Tuesday after they were brutally beaten inside their south Kansas City home.
The woman was also raped, according to a police report.
Tony L. Putman, 18, of Kansas City was charged with six felonies Tuesday afternoon. The charges include one count of rape and two counts of robbery.
The couple's ordeal began about 1:30 p.m. Monday when a man broke into their home near 73rd Street and Campbell Avenue. Entry was gained through a basement window, which was broken.
The 93-year-old man was home alone when the suspect began to ransack the house and attacked him, police said.
Putman hit the man in the face and bound him with belts, according to court documents.
In the meantime, the man's 84-year-old wife came home. She had been at the bank where she had gotten $400.
Police said the woman came into the house and heard her husband moaning.
"She went upstairs to check on him and she met his attacker," according to court documents. "He bound her hands and demanded money. She gave him $5."
After forcing the woman upstairs, the man took $400 from her she had just received from the bank. He then raped her, according to court documents. Putman allegedly also stole jewelry from the home.
After the 93-year-old man broke free, he discovered his wife crumpled in a heap on the floor.
"You see all that stuff in the news and then the next thing you know it happens to your family," said Chris Garcia, who is married to the couple's daughter. "It's just a horrible thing that someone would do something like that to two elderly people."
After receiving a description of the stolen vehicle, police kept an eye out for it. Just before 3 p.m., police became involved in a short chase with the driver. Three people inside the car were taken into custody but ultimately not charged.
"I did it all," Putman allegedly told police when he was taken into custody. "They had nothing to do with anything."
Putman cut his arm while breaking in and blood evidence was obtained at the scene, according to court documents.
At police headquarters, Putman denied being at the couple's home. He said his mother gave him the jewelry and he found the stolen car at 74th Street and Troost Avenue.
Putman claimed he injured his wrist while wrestling with a cousin.
His mother denied giving him the jewelry and his cousin denied injuring him while wresting. One of those in the car with Putman had $362 in cash on him when he was arrested, but said his mother gave it to him.
"We're just lucky that they were able to catch up to those people before they did any harm to anybody else," Garcia said.
The couple was treated at an area hospital and released Monday night.
Prosecutors are seeking a $200,000 bond. A judge has not set bond yet.

It happened a few months ago to a sweet old elderly Tulsa Couple...
F**ing dirty animal. He shouldn’t be allowed to live.
I cant bear to read the article. This is just SICK!!!! Animals like this should be put down in the public square the day their fair trial has come to its obvious conclusion.
Another one of 0bama’s sons.
Simple words cannot adequately express the anger I feel after reading that story. Only an “animal” with no moral compass, compassion, or value of human life/dignity would do this. This world would be better off without him.
One of Eric Holder’s people who deserves to be hanged from the nearest tree.
Perhaps Mr. and Mrs. Garcia will now buy her parents a Glock for protection, or move them into their home. The elderly in our family are armed to the teeth and would not hesitate to shoot.
Hasidic Jews? Amish?
A whole new book about Barry’s boys:
Where’s Obama’s statement? Holder’s?
Will the KC Star keep mentioning this ala Zimmerman/Martin to make sure the story stays in the public view?
Chat? You moved a headline story to Chat? I can only imagine why.
Look. If the subject matter offends you or is too controversial for this forum, then do what you ususally do...
“No Thanks” it.
Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama Asshole: “ I wish I had a son just like Tony!! He embodies what the black dream is in America. To kill and rob white people!! That’s what I’m doing here in Washington. Tony and I are a great team! Together we can put you white suckers in your place,...broke, jobless and if we’re lucky, dead!”
This is why I’ve been telling Mrs TZ she needs to get her carry permit sooner than later.
I’ve had one for years,but I’m not around a lot.
Seriously why was this story moved to chat???? This is a stunt You Tube would pull.
One of the hardest things to learn is that some things and some people simply cannot be fixed.
If left in place, they can be counted on to continually cause great harm or damage far beyond their worth, so the best thing to do is remove them entirely.
The bar should be set reasonably high, but Putzman has easily met that standard.
Can't wait to hear from Al & Jessie.
If Obama had a son, he ... oh, never mind. Half of black America doesn’t even see how what this piece of excrement did is wrong. And a significant percentage of the other half tend to believe whitey deserves this evil behavior by these ‘temporarily misguided yutes’. Welcome to the little barry bastard commie Amerika of Eric the racist Holder.
Unfortunately, no death penalty for rape anymore. This probably won’t go to trial, and he will plea out. We will be paying for this oxygen stealer to sit in prison, get a degree, workout till he is an olympian athlete and then he will still be relatively young when he is released.
And he WILL reoffend.
There is no justice, there is only a judicial system.
I saw the headline, and made an educated guess. I scrolled down and saw i was right. Sickening. This will have to be stopped one day.
If Obama had a son, he would look like lil Tony.
Isn’t that one of nobama’s “sons”?
I’ve got several 1911s...I just got a few boxes of DRT 45 ACP ammo....said to be one of the nastiest wound creating rounds there is. The head would be a stump. Copper clad, compressed powder frangible ammo. Upon entry the metalized powder in solid form reverts to a complete powder dispersal.
It’s good to catch this particular animal, as Garcia said, but the problem is that these post cultural animals are everywhere. But for the grace of God, there goes Trayvon, or any number of the thugs Obama would call his kids. Try to kill this arrogant piece of feces, and it will rain civil rights lawyers.
The best thing civil society, decent people of all colors and ethnicities can do is prepare to kill these predators when they come to do harm, and they are coming to all of us. Don’t let the left disarm you. The next time a leftist radical asks why people need semi auto, rifles and high capacity clips, ask him or her how many rounds it would take to stop a gang of these thugs, or rioting criminals.
Of course, everyone will talk about how "misunderstood" he is.
Sounds to me that would clean a perps ears better than “Q-Tips”!
Forgot to mention they are hollow points. Reports indicate that on the right target - meat, it is very nasty - wound so large an immediate loss of blood lowers the blood pressure causing termincal shock ....you can’t check it out on the range with a paper target or some hard surface, either.....I can’t afford a side of beef so I’ll have to trust the manufacturer until something appropriate presents itself.
Oh my God. For the first time in my life I’m really, truly afraid of the future. All those “strong” single mother’s in the 90s raised a generation of feral monsters.
That boy needs to have his head on a pike.
Same haughty righetous narcissistic eyes of Trayvon and Obama. These people have no shame or have a real problem with reality.
This is what secularism brings you. Once you do not discuss morals and ignore these things, you cannot have a personal barometer of mental health on yourself, you just do not care of how you trash the place and people around you, or how you degenerate.
A society like this turns people into worse than animals, but something akin to a rabid animal with vinegar instead of blood in their brains. IT’s not even an animal with a healthy brain, it’s something unrecognizable and glad to die simmering in its juices and drugs.
Make that - All those strong single black mothers in the 90s raised a generation of feral monsters. Violent crime is overwhelmingly a black phenomenon.
Tony Putnam is fortunate it wasn’t my family members he did that too.
Cause I can firmly say in or out of Jail if it had been, Justice would be served.
Yep, his head is a pulp already. IT’s gone. The secular can keep running on acid doing secular things, but a religious or brain that runs on morals can easily understand when the chemicals up there are fine or not, because the awareness of the behavior will befit, and the care will occure as a result.
WElfare recipients can keep smoking and shooting up while they have cancer and AIDS. There is no stopping this because of the way welfare is dispensed and creates these types and their generations.
How very sad. Anyone that would do this is a savage and needs to be put down.
If only Romney hadn’t worked at Bain once and then
Bain closed GST steel in KC. I don’t think Romney understands, or even cares about the long term impacts of closing businesses! If he hadn’t closed that plant, then this poor Amish thug would have been working and would not have been forced to rob, rape and terrorize his fellow human beings.
Yes! He could also make for outstanding mulch.
His behavior is not that of a ‘fellow human being’. It is soemthing akin to the behavior of the father of lies, a murderer from the start. Sadly, this excrement was raised up to be that way. He started as an innocent child and his culture programmed him to be this dead soul he has become. The Palestinians chnating for Jewish blood have refined the process, so perhaps little racist barry bastard commie can get Holder to bring the training to these yutes via the flashmob tactics. We’ll see, if the racist bastard boy gets four more years with his accompanying thug henchghouls.
I remember reading back in the 80’s that we were gonna have a lot of super-sociopaths on our hands by 2010.
Amoral sociopaths. They lack a conscience and if they're caught, the only people they feel sorry for are themselves. It comes in some part from the bone deep sense of entitlement that Democrats foster in the black community, but it also comes from the double standard in which society holds blacks. Black criminals can commit the most horrific crimes and it's swept under the rug, but let some non-black kill on of their precious tugs, and you get a full blown Treyvon going.
The most visible representatives of the black community go around perpetually offended even when they're looking for something to be offended by. They carry a chip on their choulder the size of
Sheila Jackson Lee Texas, and if you don't knock it off they will and say you did.
“Putzman is an argument for bringing back public humiliation as a deterrent and public hangings as both a deterrent and a final solution.”
I would add, sell tickets for the hanging and turn over the proceeds to the victims’ families. That would be after they are left alone with the handcuffed criminal and a pair of rusty scissors.
Yes, I remember that too now. The experts said we would have super predators and that’s exactly what we got.
Have you gotten an answer why this was moved to chat? It should, at the very least, be in Front Page news but really in Breaking News!!!
I figure they look at this as the rest of the MSM does.
Another black on white crime (yawn)
Nothing to see here. Move on. Best not to make a big deal over this.
Besides there are “Caption this...” threads and funny Youtube videos that need to be in News/Activism.
Unreal!!! Very disturbing that this is happening on FR.
Like Romneys famous chick fil-a dodge:
“It’s not part of our campaign....”
