A man was accused Friday of entering a North Side house earlier this week and stealing guns and a computer while holding a woman at gunpoint while being monitored through GPS and out on bond for another break-in in which he’s accused of raping a woman.
George L. Goins, 37, no permanent address, was charged with armed burglary and felony bail jumping in La Crosse County Circuit Court.
The victim got home at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday and came in through the back door of 500 block of Caledonia Street. She walked through the home, went into her bedroom and looked in the mirror. While looking in the mirror, she saw two men coming toward her, according to the complaint.
Goins and an unidentified man entered the house and approached her holding a revolver, according to the complaint. The woman told police one pushed her and asked her for drugs, then hit her with the hand that was holding the gun, while the other rummaged through her belongings.
The two men told her to lie on the bed and count to 25 before leaving, according to the complaint. She told police they took a revolver, a .22-calibre rifle and a 9-milliiter handgun, as well as ammunition, the woman’s phone and a computer.
An officer recognized Goins from previous law enforcement contact on surveillance video from the home’s dining room.
Goins was out on bond with a condition that he comply with GPS monitoring from Justice Support Services. His GPS bracelet puts him on the woman’s block between 2:10 and 2:14 p.m., during the home invasion.
