Two people were arrested late Wednesday afternoon and charged with breaking into the home of a woman and assaulting her earlier this month in Radcliff, according to arrest warrants.

Ruben Gosa II, 23, of Vine Grove and Veda Os­borne, 19, of Radcliff each are charged with first-degree burglary and fourth-degree assault with a minor injury following a reported July 17 incident at a Stockton Court residence in Radcliff.

According to arrest

warrants, the pair "forced their way inside" the residence. Once inside, Osborne repeatedly began striking the woman in the head and face with a closed fist as Gosa held the women’s arms so she was unable to defend herself, the warrant said.

The woman was bleeding from a cut above her left eye, the warrant said.

Before leaving, Gosa reportedly said, "You got your licks, let’s go," according to the warrant. The pair then fled the residence in a black Volkswagen Jetta.

Osborne was released Thursday from the Har­din County Detention Cen­ter on a $25,000 cash bond. Gosa was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.

Both are scheduled to appear Aug. 2 in Hardin District Court.

First-degree burglary is a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted. Fourth-­degree assault is a Class A misdemeanor pun­ishable by up to one year in prison, if convicted.
