Complaint: Man charged after stabbing women with butcher knife in 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.
