Charged in home invasion;
two other suspects sought

A Northland home invasion that ended with a stabbing has resulted in charges against one man, and police are still searching for two other suspects.

Frank A. Toth, 23, has been charged with first degree burglary, assault, and armed criminal action after an alleged home invasion on Monday.

Platte County Prosecutor Eric Zahnd said Toth was charged Monday evening, following an investigation by Kansas City Missouri Police Department. The investigation is ongoing, as police look for two other suspects who were allegedly involved in the burglary and assault.

According to court documents, Toth and two other white male suspects allegedly forced their way into an apartment at 4521 NW 78th Terrace. Toth allegedly stabbed one of the people in the apartment, who was also allegedly beaten and kicked. That person was transported to a hospital where he received several staples and stitches to his head and leg.

Another person in the apartment was allegedly hit in the head with the end of a shotgun and also kicked several times.

Toth is currently in custody in lieu of $150,000 cash only bond.

Two other suspects have not yet been arrested. The first suspect is a white male known as “Jersey” or “Jason.” He is in his late teens or early twenties, 5’10” to 6’3”, heavy set, with short dirty-blond hair, a goatee, a tattoo of “Jersey” on his right hand.

The second suspect is a white male in his late teens to early twenties, 5’9” to 6’2”, with a slim to medium build.

Zahnd said anyone with information about the suspects should contact the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous, and a reward is available for information that leads to the arrest of the people who committed the crimes.
