The last suspect wanted for a violent home invasion in Golden in May is now in custody. 

Golden Police say Cody Jones, 20, turned himself into police Thursday, July 7.

Police say Jones was one of three men who knocked on the door of Jesse and Jessica Swift's home on Washington Avenue on May 16.

Jesse Swift, a father of two and a teacher at Bell Middle School, got in a fight with the men and was stabbed in his kidney and lung.

His wife ran to a neighbor's home for help.

Swift survived and is recovering.

The family's two children were in the basement asleep during the incident.

The men went to the home expecting to find $10,000 in cash and drugs but were given the wrong address, according to police.

Jones is facing several charges including attempted second degree murder, first degree assault, burglary, menacing, conspiracy to commit aggravate robbery, and false imprisonment.

The other three suspects are already in custody.

Caleb Williams, 21, and the suspected getaway driver Julia Johnson, 19, both have court hearings scheduled in July.

A Petition in Delinquency was filed for the last suspect, a juvenile male.
