Anniston police charged a man Friday with breaking into another man’s home and demanding money last month.

Clinton Michael Doyle, 37, of Anniston, turned himself in at the Anniston Police Department and was charged with first-degree burglary, a felony.

Police said Doyle was involved in the burglary with the victim's ex-wife, Rachel Coppock, who was also charged last week.

Anniston police Capt. Allen George said Coppock and Doyle broke into the 30-year-old man’s home on the 3800 block of Knollwood Drive on July 24. According to the captain, Coppock demanded her ex-husband give her money, and the victim told her she needed to leave.

Shortly after, Doyle entered the house, held a handgun to the victim’s head and threatened to kill him if he did not hand over the money, George said.

Coppock calmed Doyle down, George said, and the three walked outside.

While outside, Doyle hit the victim in the face, the captain said.

The victim ran inside, locked himself in the home and called police, George said.

According to a police report, the male suspect, who police later identified as Doyle, attempted to break into the house and caused $100 in damage to a door.

Coppock and Doyle fled before police arrived.

Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said today he was uncertain of the relationship between Coppock and Doyle.

Doyle was released on a $10,000 bond from the Anniston City Jail on Friday. Coppock was released Friday, as well. Court appearances for the two are scheduled for Aug. 26.
