At approximately 6:00 p.m. 38-year-old Johnny Cossey and 43-year-old Timothy Holmes entered the residence of 22-year-old Vincent Taylor, all from Ogden. Immediately upon the two men making entry, Taylor was accosted and received two puncture wounds (one small wound to the cheek and one wound to the neck). The victim was also struck with a blunt object. Also inside the residence, however uninjured, was 24-year-old Samantha Rex of Ogden, Kansas.
