CAPE CORAL POLICE DEPARTMENT Public Affairs Office 1100 Cultural Park Blvd Cape Coral, FL 33990 239-574-0642


(January 16, 2012)- At approximately 0533 hours officers responded to 4928 Viceroy Court in reference to a male subject shot in the leg. The victim told officers “Ace” broke into his home, attempted to rob him, and shot him in the leg. The victim stated that he was familiar with “Ace” and that he lived near the 7-11 at Coronado and Miramar. Officers on duty were familiar with an “Ace” that lives near Coronado and Miramar. Contact was made with “Ace” (Ace Young –W/M 07/19/91) at that location. Officers saw items that Ace Young identified as stolen property from car burglaries that occurred just hours prior. Further investigation led officers to Marcel Young (B/M 12/23/95 – no relation to Ace), Eric Mynhier (W/M 07/10/91) and Aidon Young (W/M 06/05/89 – brother of Ace) at 5204 Coronado Parkway. Marcel Young, Aidon Young and Eric Mynhier confessed to “car hopping” (committing numerous vehicle burglaries) throughout the night; thus a Search Warrant will be served at two locations to retrieve stolen property. The 3 then went to 4928 Viceroy Court to rob the victim of prescription pills. During the robbery, Marcel Young shot the victim in the leg. The victim was also struck in the head with a miniature aluminum bat that was taken from a vehicle burglary. Marcel Young, Aidon Young and Eric Nynhier will be charged with Home Invasion Robbery and Aggravated Battery; as well as, approximately 3 vehicle burglaries depending upon what property is recovered from the Search Warrants. The 3 have cooperated and provided full confessions. Ace Young was never involved and will not be charged.

No other information will be released today.
