Police in Fountain, Colorado, say a teen tried to hire hit men to kill his mother so he could get money to pay for his girlfriend's breast implants. Police say the teen planned to sell his mother's car and use her bank account.

Authorities say the mother was attacked with a small wooden baseball bat at her home Thursday but escaped.

Deputy Police Chief Mike Barnett says 18-year-old Nikita Lee Weis was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Also arrested on the same charge were his girlfriend, 21-year-old Sophia Nicole Alsept, and the two men he allegedly hired. They are identified as 18-year-old Juan Antonio Velez Gonzalez and 19-year-old Brandon Michael Soroka.

All are being held on $50,000 bail.
