ALTON, IL (KTVI)-- Four suspects have been charged in a violent home invasion in Alton earlier this month.

Police say Rachel Barnes, 24, Christopher Hill, 27, DeMarco Smith, 20, and Curtis Wallace, 38, went to the victim’s house to commit an Armed Robbery.  While there, Hill and Wallace took the plan further, beating the victim with a gun, pipe wrench and their fists and feet and by stabbing the victim with a knife.

However, the 55-year-old victim did survive and has since been released from the hospital.

Two of those four suspects are charged with attempted murder.
