A male came out of the house and attempted to stop the theft in progress and gets hit in the face. Krassilowsky and his friend ended up driving the truck away and put it in the ditch in front of the house. The owner of the truck woke up from the commotion and saw his truck in the ditch, still running. The owner contact the police and upon police arrival, the two were arrested. The other accused cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

- Theft of a motor vehicle (Ford F-150).
