Two more charged in case of imprisoning, assaulting women in Spanaway apartment

Pierce County prosecutors have charged two more people in a case where two women were imprisoned and assaulted in a Spanaway apartment earlier this month.

Hali Ann Reeves, 19, and Willie Justin Cantrell, 18, both face charges of unlawful imprisonment and first-degree robbery.

Last week, prosecutors charged Douglas Alfred Bischoff, 24, and Carlos Aguirre, 18, in the case. Bischoff was arrested Wednesday night after a six-hour standoff with a Pierce County sheriff’s SWAT team.

Bischoff allegedly met two women at a store and brought them back to his apartment to drink alcohol. Reeves, Cantrell and Aguirre were already there.

According to charging papers:

Bischoff used a stun gun to shock one of the women. He then handed the stun gun to Reeves, who tried to shock the second victim. The two women struggled and Bischoff intervened and punched the victim in the mouth.

The second victim made a run for the door but Bischoff grabbed her hair and was so enraged that she had defended herself against Reeves that he punched her several more times.

Prosecutors noted that Bischoff weighs 270 pounds and the victim weighs 135 pounds.

The first victim tried to help her friend but was held back by Cantrell and Aguirre.

Bischoff then armed himself with a handgun, stole the victim’s purse and forced one of the victims to braid his hair. He then handed over their car keys and told them to leave, threatening their families if they went to the police.

    These women should have better sense than go to someone apartment that they just met. I bet they will never do that again. It is good they went to the police. Spanaway seems to have a lot of problems.

    No life , This is my family you guys decide to judge what if I sat here and judged you for sitting on the computer all day harrassing a 19 y/o about all this .

  5. Irritated says:

    It was dumb…obviously. That’s not a judgment, just an observation. Just because it was your family, doesn’t make it less dumb.

    Also, why is it that when people don’t like what someone says then they automatically jump to, “you just sit on the computer all day.”? Aren’t you on here too?

    That’s as dumb as the girl who told my whole class she saw me shopping at Kmart.

    Madaline, your post confuses me. You say “this is my family”. I assume, you mean Hali Ann Reeves, 19, Willie Justin Cantrell, 18, Douglas Alfred Bischoff, 24, and Carlos Aguirre, 18. If that is the case, I can understand why you might have some issues stemming from a biological standpoint. Unless it’s a commune. Dear, are you living in a commune with these people? Find a different “family”. Quickly. If however, your family consists of the two victims, may I suggest you find different role models? If you are living with none of these people, then I say “well done” – you’ve made some good choices toward improving your life.

    As far as judging anyone, let me acquaint you with an old adage -“Actions speak louder than words”. Years ago, folks used to have these helpful little reminders embroidered on samplers around the house. In addition to proving some decorative embellishment for the habitants, these pithy lines reminded folks of some truths. I digress.

    Whilst the aforenamed individuals may be “your family” in whatever sense of the definition, their actions speak louder than words, and they are, also individuals with serious moral and psychological issues in need of some intense work. In the meantime, since they can’t play well with others, they get to go to jail. That’s how our society works.

    As to “harassing a 19 year old”, I’m unclear – which 19 year old is being harassed? None of this is being directed toward anyone mentioned in the article, therefore I think claims of harassment will be hard to prove.

    I am always amazed at folks who get exercised when their nearest and dearest make the news, and public commentary ensues. The easiest way to avoid having oneself, and one’s family, NOT be discussed publicly in a negative light, is to ensure that one comports oneself in such a way that one’s bad behavior does NOT land one in the media.
