Update: Masked Intruders Invaded Home, Robbed Video Game Players
Two women already inside the home as guests were part of the set up for the robbery, St. Louis County Police said.
Four people now have been charged with invading a North County home at about 7 p.m. Monday.
A teenager was at his home in the 15600 block of 94th Avenue in North County with several friends, playing video games when two masked men burst into the house.
One of the men was armed with a collapsible baton, forced five teens onto the floor and demanded money. The masked men ran from the residence after robbing the victims of items including money, cell phones, car keys, jewelry and video game equipment.
During the incident, the suspects struck two of the victims with fists and the baton causing minor injuries.
Patch earlier reported that Jonathan Q. Phillips, 24, of the 9700 block of Millburn had been charged in the case.
Three other people were charged in the home invasion were Anthony L. Jackson, 19, of the 5900 block of Boulder Creek Court in Hazelwood; Raven J. Johnson, 19, of the 2700 block of North Waterford Drive in Florissant; and Keyierra A Perkins, 17, of the 700 block of Madison Lane in Florissant.
All four were charged Wednesday with first-degree burglary, five counts of first-degree robbery and six counts of armed criminal action.
St. Louis County Police reported that the two women, Johnson and Perkins, were in the home with the five victims as part of a set up for the robbery.
A $50,000 cash only bond was set for each individual.
The investigation conducted by the St. Louis County Crimes Against Persons Unit led to the arrest and charges of the four individuals on Wednesday.
