In an effort to intimidate a witness to a stabbing, three people attacked a woman in a home invasion Monday night because they thought she lied to the police.

Idona Gordon, 18, and Antonio C. Rhinehouse, 22, were charged with felony intimidation of a witness, burglary of a building or dwelling, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct. Idona and Rhinehouse were charged Wednesday. Mariah Gordon, 19, was named as a co-defendant in the case, but charges have not been officially issued by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

The three are accused of forcing their way into the witness’ house in the 700 block of 10th Street.  The witness told police she was sleeping at the time. The three broke into the home thinking the woman lied to police about a stabbing she said she saw, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Idona, Mariah and Rhinehouse kicked the woman and pepper sprayed her face. The woman had a cut to her lip and a large bump over her left eye.

Another person was bleeding near his right eye. He would not tell police how he got hurt and told police he was not willing to prosecute.
