MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  Two suspects accused of kicking in a woman's door and committing a violent attack against her boyfriend have been arrested, police say.

On Sunday, June 16, Mary Moore and her boyfriend Antonio Williams were inside her Eglesfield Drive home when three suspects - identified by the victim as Henry Collins, Mario Collins and one of her relatives - kicked in her door.

According to Moore, the men immediately began attacking Williams. Unable to stop them, she grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Henry Collins. That's when the suspects took off running.

"I tried to fight them off,"Moore said.

Mario Collins was detained by security while Henry Collins left the scene in a private vehicle. He was later taken into custody at Methodist South.

Williams told police the suspect were mad because he wouldn't let them live at the apartment without chipping in for rent. He says he's forever grateful to his girlfriend for saving him.

"My neighbors, they was like, 'You got a good girl man. she's a brave one."

Henry and Mario Collins were charged with aggravated burglary.

The third suspect, Junior Thomas, was identified by Moore but he has not been taken into custody at this time.
