BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A man and woman are facing charges after allegedly barging into an apartment and attacking the woman inside, according to investigators.

Court documents show Amber Simmons and Devonte Stepter were both arrested on a charge of home invasion.

Officials said it happened Wednesday night at an apartment on North Sherwood Forest Boulevard.

According to the probable cause report, the victim told deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office that Simmons, Stepter, and another man showed up at the apartment, but were refused entry. The report stated the victim said Simmons ran inside the apartment and started punching her, which led to a fight between the two women. It added the victim’s relative was able to separate them and get all three uninvited guests outside of the apartment.

According to the PC, before that relative could close the door, Stepter allegedly ran back inside the apartment and punched the woman in the mouth. It added the victim said Stepter then pulled out a gun and said he would kill her. The report stated the victim’s relative was eventually able to get Stepter to leave without any additional violence.

The victim reportedly told investigator that she and Simmons were acquaintances at one point, but no longer got along. The report stated the woman’s relative confirmed her story.

Simmons and Stepter are being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without bond.
