A Colorado police department has secured arrest warrants for two of its officers, after a suspect was pistol-whipped during a trespassing call last week.

Aurora Police Officers John Haubert, 39, and Francine Martinez, 40, were the first on the scene for a trespassing call at 2.16 pm Friday near Peoria, where they reportedly encountered three suspects, including Kyle Maurice Vinson, 29.

Two of the suspects ran, authorities said, at which point Haubert forced Vinson to the ground and started choking him, eventually hitting him with the butt of his gun until he bled from his head and started crying.

Vinson was reportedly struck by the pistol about 13 times, and required six stitches, officials announced Tuesday, and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Haubert has now been charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree assault, felony menacing, official oppression and official misconduct. He has also been suspended from the police department without pay.

Martinez, meanwhile, is charged with failing her duty to intervene and duty to report use of force. She has been suspended from the department with pay.

Both Haubert and Martinez are now out on bond, Police Chief Vanessa Wilson said at a news conference on Tuesday.

According to court documents obtained by CBS Denver, upon arriving on the scene Friday, the two officers ordered the three suspects to sit while they tried to run a records check on them.

After Martinez reportedly discovered that they had warrants, two of the suspects ran away.

At that point, Haubert could be seen pushing Vinson to the ground, and demands that he rolls over on his stomach, as Vinson asks: 'Whoa, what the h*** did I do.'

Soon, Haubert is seen grabbing Vinson by the neck with one hand and pressing the muzzle of his gun on the back of Vinson's head with the other, ordering him to put his hands out in front of him, as Vinson insists he does not have a warrant.

Haubert could then be seen hitting Vinson with the gun multiple times.

With blood streaking down his face, Vinson could be seen beginning to cry, saying: 'You're killing me bro.'
