He allegedly broke into the couple’s home on Monday afternoon through basement window and began ransacking it.
When Putman saw the husband, police said he attacked him. Cops say that he also hit the man in the face and tied him up with belts. His 84-year-old wife, who was at the bank and returned with $400, arrived home to the sound of her husband moaning.
KCTV-TV has more on this story:
“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 any jewelry and his cousin shot down claims that he injured him while wrestling. Putman is in police custody and prosecutors are seeking a $200,00 bond for him.
The couple was treated at a local hospital and released Monday night.
