(WMC-TV) - A Jackson family has been charged for using their fists, a coat rack and an eyebrow trimmer to attack people during a Christmas home invasion, police say.

Officers say a 15-year-old got into an altercation with 18-year-old Montrell Bond at a family member's home around 10 o'clock Christmas night.

The 15-year-old boy left, but later returned with three family members in tow, according to police.

Corey Bond, who owns the home in the 30 block of Farmington Drive, heard banging on the door. When he opened it, Fredricka Jackson, the 15-year-old's mother, forced her way inside while swinging a bladed eyebrow trimmer, police say.

Then the 15-year-old and his brother, Cornelius Banks, entered the home and attacked several people inside, beating them with their fists, according to Jackson police.

Finally, the boy's uncle, Kentrell Gray, stormed into the house and tried to hit its residents with a coat rack.

The Bond family eventually forced the intruders outside, investigators say, and Montrell Bond was able to catch two of the intruders - Banks and the 15- year-old boy – in the street.

But the 15-year-old's mother tried to make sure her family made a clean getaway, according to police.

Officers say she tried to run over Bond with her car. Fortunately, he escaped with only minor injuries from the vehicle, but did have to be treated for a cut from the bladed eyebrow trimmer.

The alleged intruders were eventually caught, treated for their injuries sustained during the scuffle, and arrested.

Jackson was charged with especially aggravated burglary and aggravated assault and Gray was charged with especially aggravated burglary. Banks was transported to the Madison County Jail.

The 15-year-old was taken to the Madison County Juvenile Detention Center and has since been released on house arrest.
