Complaint: Man charged after stabbing women with butcher knife in Riverwest home

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee man has been charged in the stabbing of two women in their Riverwest home. 

Nyrobi William Allen, 48, is charged with two counts of first degree reckless injury, use of a dangerous weapon and burglary (home invasion). 

According to a criminal complaint, Milwaukee police responded to the violent home invasion near Fratney and Meinecke Avenue on Dec. 21, 2019. Officers found two women with deep stab wounds all over their bodies -- one going in and out of consciousness.

After receiving medical treatment, one of the victims told officers that she and her girlfriend were going to sleep when a man with a butcher knife suddenly entered their room. She said her girlfriend, who was pregnant, began screaming, and the man, later identified as Allen, started stabbing her. 

The woman said she rolled on top of her girlfriend to protect the unborn child, and Allen proceeded to stab both women repeatedly while yelling, "Where's the money?" and threatening to kill the baby.

The complaint says Allen stopped stabbing them when the pregnant woman told him that the money was upstairs. The women said he then took a backpack of their belongings and left. 

Both women suffered serious injuries, according to the complaint. One woman spent five initial days in the hospital, while the pregnant woman spent three days. 

The women told law enforcement that they did not know Allen, and had no idea who would want to harm them.

Allen was bound over for trial on Jan. 17, when he pleaded not guilty. 

His next court date is scheduled for Feb. 5.

Demerits and Timeouts don't deter crime.

Nyrobi William Allen has several previous convictions from this type of crime, has received Demerits, and has served Timeouts. How long ago did he finish his last Timeout?

Violent crime needs to met with substantial punishment. Perhaps some Old Testament Biblical punishment would be appropriate. He broke into the home of two women, one pregnant, and stabbed them both with a large knife.

... but with our current legal system, Nyrobi William Allen will receive more Demerits, another Timeout, and a lecture of more Demerits to follow, if he doesn't change his ways.
