A Kansas City man, just two days removed from being bonded out of jail in Grandview, faces multiple felony charges in connection with a home invasion and beating Monday afternoon in Sugar Creek.
Tyler Daleo, 27, faces one count each of first-degree assault and first-degree burglary and two counts of armed criminal action after he allegedly forced his way into a home in the 100 block of Ralston Avenue in Sugar Creek, tied up a pair of victims, beat one of them, poured a chemical liquid on them and threatened to set them on fire.
According to court documents, Sugar Creek Police responded about 3 p.m. to an assault and found a male victim inside the residence of the victim's neighbor. The man had blood and large cuts and bruises on his face and was complaining of pain in multiple areas. He said he had met a woman on Saturday, and “she stayed the night and stuff happened.” She left on Sunday, saying her boyfriend had just gotten out of jail.
Early in the afternoon, the woman called the victim and asked if she could come over for a few minutes, and when the man answered the door Daleo forced his way inside, holding a gun, and ordered the victim to get on his knees before hitting him numerous times. The victim's roommate came into the front room when he heard a loud noise, and Daleo ordered him to the ground, tied his hands behind his back, as Daleo had done to the roommate, and poured a chemical liquid on them. The second victim said he heard the voice of the woman who had stayed the previous night say, “Stop!” Daleo left the residence without causing further injury.
Police tracked Daleo's phone to the Grandview address of the cosigner used for bonding Daleo out of jail. He had been in arrested late in 2015 by Independence Police for failure to appear after charges of tampering with a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property. With assistance from Grandview Police, Sugar Creek detectives kept Daleo under surveillance overnight and arrested him early Tuesday.
Bond has been set at $150,000.
