BRADENTON -- Two suspects were arrested on charges of breaking into a home and robbing the occupants at gunpoint early Monday, according to the Bradenton Police Department.
Larry J. Jackson, 26, and Michael Jerome Davis, 34, kicked in the door of the residence in the 3900 block of 37th Street Court West then held several occupants at gunpoint while they searched for money and property at 12:05 a.m. Monday, police said.
They took a purse and an undisclosed amount of money, according to a release.
A neighbor who heard the commotion came outside, saw the suspects' vehicle driving away and was able to provide a description to police, according to a report.
Police tried to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle that matched the description, but the car failed to stop, police said. Jackson and Davis eventually pulled into a residential driveway and attempted to run on foot but were caught by police.
A victim was brought to the scene and positively identified both suspects, the report said. Money stolen from the home and a firearm were also located inside the vehicle.
Both Jackson and Davis are being charged with armed home invasion, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, according to records. They are being held without bond at the Manatee County jail.
