Two suspects charged in a June 25 home invasion are also considered suspects in the May 20 armed robbery of Little Caesar's in Schofield.

According to court documents, Ryan Olsen, 24, and Matthew Dupleasis, 23, are accused of forcing their way into a home on 5th Avenue in Wausau on June 25. The alleged victim told investigators one of the men knocked on her door and asked for a man named Craig. The woman told him she did not know Craig. She said the man left but returned 20 minutes later asking to use her phone, and for a glass of water. The woman said the man acted suspicious so she asked him to leave. The woman said the man left, but a few minutes later her back door was kicked in and the man and another man entered with guns.

The woman told investigators one of them held a gun to her head and demanded drugs and money. The woman said she had neither and that's when the men locked her and her two-year-old child the basement. The woman's boyfriend arrived at the home about an hour later and called 911. The woman said the men took a television and playstation game console.

Olsen was arrested in July and was charged Tuesday with two counts of burglary, two counts of false imprisonment, illegally possessing a firearm and armed robbery.

Dupleasis is expected to be charged with the same counts. However, he is currently in custody in the Marquette County County Jail in Michigan on a weapons charge.

Olsen is behind bars in on a $500,000 cash bond. He has several previous burglary convictions.

Court documents said DNA on t-shirt found near Little Caesar's after the robbery ties Dupleasis to crime. Investigators have receive information that Olsen was the second suspect in that crime.

Dupleasis and Olsen have not been charged with robbing Little Caesar's.

Olsen will return to court in the on Sept. 18.
