Police arrived on the scene, and rather than arresting the neighbors for assault with a deadly weapon (at a minimum), they arrested the homeowners, charging them with loitering and prowling. Jean-Joseph Kalonji said that the terrible situation triggers awful memories from his life in the Congo: "There, they put me down with the gun to my head, and [after I] come here, the same. . . ." A spokesperson for the county sheriff's office said that authorities were "“looking into it, exactly what occurred, why it occurred."
Angelica Kalonji's Facebook page states that she is from Bucharest, Romania. Her husband Jean-Joseph is from Lubumbas, Katanga, Congo.
