Three suspects, including two juveniles, are under arrest for allegedly brutally beating an older couple with pistols during a home invasion. Police say they've also recovered one of the firearms stolen during the crime.

The assault happened on the 2100 block of Grafton Drive, near South Chelton and Jet Wing in Colorado Springs. Police say that around 6:13 a.m., three men forced the door open after first trying to knock. Once inside, they assaulted the married couple, a man and woman in their 70s, beating them with a handgun. Officers say the attack was unprovoked, and left the couple with serious injuries. Both were hospitalized as a result.

After the crime, neighbor Carolyn Madrid-Sanchez described the couple as "the neighborhood grandparents."

"They are great people," neighbor Adella Lovato added.

"When (the police) came to tell us what was going on, I was crying," Madrid-Sanchez said. "This is not something that goes on in our neighborhood so i really want to get it out there that this is not common."

The husband was released from the hospital a day later after being treated for a concussion, multiple contusions and lacerations. His wife's condition was more serious. She was put into the intensive care ward for serious head trauma, but was eventually released the next week.

Police say they questioned a number of people during the two-week period following the crime and have executed search warrants and arrest warrants for three suspects.

On November 9th, 20 year-old Darryl Lynch was arrested. Two juvenile suspects were also arrested and charged for their involvement in the case. All three face charged of aggravated robbery, assault on an at-risk adult, burglary, conspiracy and felony theft.

So far, police have only recovered one of the weapons that was stolen during the home invasion. Police say they believe the weapons were the motivation for the robbery.

Additional charges could be pending, police say.

A press conference about the case was scheduled for 2:00 Thursday afternoon.

    It'd be nice if everyone wasn't soo judgemental.. what is really wrong with all of you!! Just because he's a suspect doesn't mean he actually did it.. if only you all really knew him! Just because he's black doesn't give any of you the right to discriminate. It's soo sad to hear and see all the negativity coming from people who arent any better than the next.. Only God Can Judge!!!!! Free Darryl.. i miss you!

    Look at this punk. Looks pretty defiant. Looks as though he has the world figured out. The world won't look as figured out from a jail cell. Oh,and by the way, the general population in prison will love to get their hands on this punk. Senior beaters, child molesters, rapists all get "special" treatment in prison. A properly placed coach gun (double barreled shotgun) is a great deterrent to scumbags.

    Hopefully the juveniles will be tried as adults. They deserve to be. It is truly sickening to think that children were involved in this. If it were my son, I'd be ashamed. I would feel personally responsible that I failed as a parent. This is a case where I def feel a bit of prison justice is appropriate.
