Guam - 16-year-old Kyle James Cruz is scheduled to answer to criminal charges on Wednesday relative to a brutal home invasion that occurred in Piti last month. Cruz is charged as an adult along with Raymond Tedtaotao and Anthony Paul Mendiola. They are accused of forcing their way into a Nimitiz Hill home and tying up a woman, beating her and leaving her unconscious. 

Cruz allegedly gathered clothes and a camera while Mendiola stole two laptops from the house.  The victim sustained serious brain trauma and underwent neurosurgery as a result of the beating. Mendiola and Tedtaotao pleaded not guilty to the charges and asserted their right to a speedy trial. 

The two men are scheduled to appear back in court to find out when they will go to trial on Friday.
