An Ohio home invasion last Friday resulted in a toddler being held in gunpoint as his mother's cousin robbed the family home, police say.

Christopher Sprinkles, 25, and Marcus Williams, 26, allegedly teamed up to kick in the front door of the home of Sprinkles' cousin, Stephanie McDaniel, WKRC reports.

McDaniel shares the Middletown residence with her 2-year-old son and her boyfriend, Neil Amburgey, according to Fox 19. The three were together in the living room when the break-in occurred just after midnight on Friday.

Investigators say Williams held the family at gunpoint while Sprinkles headed to the bedroom to search for valuables. The police report states that McDaniel protected her son during the incident, according to the Dayton Daily News.

Amburgey told police that the two intruders were wearing bandannas over their faces, but he was nevertheless able to identify Sprinkles.

What was stolen is unclear, though the police report states that the stolen goods were given to an unidentified third party.

Both Williams and Sprinkles were charged with aggravated burglary. Sprinkles faces additional charges of tampering with evidence and drug abuse.
