BRANTFORD, Ont. - Two men are facing a pile of charges in connection with disturbing case in Brantford.

Police allege the suspects forced their way into a home, assaulted the residents and killed two kittens by stomping on them.

Police say officers responding to a disturbance call (on Eagle Ave.) early Saturday morning were confronted by a drunken male who started punching their cruiser.

They say the man then turned on officers, and after being placed in a cruiser kicked out its rear window.

The man is also accused of damaging a cell at the Brantford police station.

Twenty-seven-year-old Justin Webber of Brantford is facing numerous charges including two counts of killing or injuring an animal, break and enter, assault and breach of probation.

Twenty-nine-year-old James Carpenter, also of Brantford, is facing a slew of charges including causing a disturbance by being drunk, assault police and resisting arrest.

The two remain in custody with a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday.

Police, meantime, say they're looking for a third suspect in the case.
