Kalon Frank, 22, and Joshua Miller, 22, both of Eunice, were booked with Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling, Second Degree Battery, Criminal Trespassing and Theft of a Firearm, Eunice Chief Randy Fontenot said.

They were arrested in connection with an incident on West Vine, the chief said. A resident returned home at about midnight to find two burglars in his home. The burglars attacked him, and he was treated at a local hospital for his injuries, the chief said.

During the burglary, a .22 caliber rifle and a diamond ring were stolen, the chief said.

A tip made to St. Landry Parish Crime Stoppers led to the recovery of the rifle and eventual arrest of the suspects, the chief said.
