Additional charges were filed Friday against a man who
is already jailed in connection with a series of home
burglaries and attacks. Gregory Kyle Malone, 21, was
charged Friday with first-degree burglary, robbery with a
firearm and shooting with intent to kill, court records
The three new charges are tied to a burglary that
escalated into a home invasion robbery and ended with the
burglar firing one shot at a man, Detective Mike Eubanks
About 8:10 a.m. Dec. 1, a burglar broke into a house in
the 1000 block of North Rockford Avenue. He threatened a
woman in the house with a gun and stole money from her.
The intruder stole a gun while inside the house and then
shot at a neighbor as he was fleeing, Eubanks said.
Malone was charged Dec. 7 with two counts of
first-degree burglary, one count of first-degree rape and
one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection
with two burglaries.
Two of the charges involve a Nov. 26 burglary during
which a woman was raped in her home near 37th Street and
Harvard Avenue. The other two charges involve a Dec. 2
burglary and attack in the 2100 block of South Atlanta
Place, during which an intruder bit and threatened a
resident with a baseball bat before forcing him into a
closet. Malone was a fugitive until his arrest Dec. 17
at his grandparents' Snowflake, Ariz., home. He was
extradited to Oklahoma on Dec. 30.
More charges that have been approved against Malone are
expected to be filed next week in connection with other
serious break-ins, First Assistant District Attorney Sharon
One of those cases occurred Nov. 13 in the 1900 block of
North Iroquois Avenue, Eubanks said.
In that case, an 86-year-old woman was asleep when the
burglar broke into her house about five minutes after
midnight. He demanded her money and then fled with $200
cash that she had stored away.
About three hours later the same man broke into her
house again, Eubanks said.
"She was toward the back of her house when he kicked the
front door in. She ran out the back door, and he caught her
in the back yard and demanded more money," Eubanks said.
He took another $100 in cash and a $560 Social Security
check, and he pulled the wedding band off the widow's
In another case in which charges are expected to be
filed, a 62-year-old man was maimed.
In that burglary, a man broke into a house in the 600
block of East Apache Street about 2:10 a.m. Nov. 16.
The 62-year-old man was sleeping when he heard the
burglar break in through a window. The occupant tried to
dial 911, but the burglar jumped onto his bed, grabbed the
phone and repeatedly punched him in the face. The burglar
fled with cash and jewelry.
The resident was treated for facial injuries that night.
As a result of those injuries, doctors removed one of his
eyes on Thursday. While the man was staying with
family members to recover from his injuries, a burglar
broke into his house again on Nov. 23. He stole a
television, a microwave and two telephones. Police believe
the same man committed both burglaries at the home.
Charges in up to three more break-ins are also expected
to be filed against Malone.
