CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Cambridge police have arrested two suspects in connection with a late Sunday night home invasion.
Eighteen-year-old Stephen Justus Howe of Denton, and 20-year-old Laquon Allen Williams of Cambridge, are each charged with first-degree burglary; third-degree burglary; fourth-degree burglary; fourth-degree burglary/theft; armed robbery, two counts of robbery; theft $1,000 to under $10,000; two counts of first-degree assault; two counts of second-degree assault; handgun on person and firearm use in a felony-violent crime.
Police said the two arrests stemmed from an incident that occurred at around 11 p.m., when officers were dispatched to 715 Travers St. for a reported home invasion. When police arrived on the scene, they met with a victim who stated that he was asleep in bed when unknown persons knocked on his front door.
According to police, the victim got up and observed three suspects armed with handguns force their way inside the home. The victim and his girlfriend were forced to the ground at gunpoint, investigators said. Police said the three suspects then went through the home and took two six guns before fleeing. After the suspects left, the victim was able to call police. A short time later, officers said they observed three people matching the description of the suspects in the above incident.
Officers, with the assistance of a police K-9 unit, gave pursuit and were able to capture two of the three suspects, identified as Howe and Williams. During the pursuit officers also recovered the six stolen guns, police said.
Following their arrests on the aforementioned charges, Howe and Williams were ordered held in the Dorchester County Detention Center on $1 million bond.
