CEDAR RAPIDS — Cedar Rapids police say the weapon used by a juvenile in a Saturday burglary ended up being a BB gun.
According to court documents, 16-year-old Brandin M. Kiefer accompanied 19-year-old Kylee S. Sakulin to a Cedar Rapids residence on Samuel Court to steal items including clothing, a marijuana blunt and a cellphone.
Police say Kiefer, who was armed with what appeared to be a handgun, threatened the victim while armed with what police later identified as a BB gun.
Cedar Rapids public safety spokesman Greg Buelow said officers believe Sakulin and Kiefer knew the victim.
“We do not believe this was a random act,” he said.
Kiefer has been charged with a Class C felony count of second-degree burglary and assault with a weapon, a serious misdemeanor.
Sakulin faces one count of first-degree burglary, a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
