(January 22, 2015)- Cape Coral Police Detectives have arrested 16 year-old Keenan Jermaine Stanley on charges of Home Invasion Robbery, Aggravated Assault, and Grand Theft stemming from a January 7th home invasion in SE Cape Coral.
On January 7, Cape Coral Police responded to 423 SE 8th St. in reference to a home invasion. The victim (a juvenile) told Officers and Detectives that he was lying in bed when 3 black males entered his bedroom, armed with baseball bats, and stole numerous pairs of sneakers, an iPhone 5, and an Xbox 360. One suspect told the victim that he had a gun in his pocket and not to move.
The suspects loaded the items into bags and exited the residence through the rear slider. The victim ran after them and saw the three black males leave in a car which was parked on SE 7th Street.
Witnesses in the neighborhood saw the suspects running from the house. All three black males were described as approximately 5'09", 150 lbs and around 16 years of age. The first black male was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with his face exposed. The second black male was also wearing a hooded sweatshirt but had a red bandana covering his face from the nose down. The third black male was lighter skinned with a blonde afro. Detectives and Forensics personnel responded to the scene.
A few days later, both the victim and a neighborhood witness positively identified Stanley as one of the three suspects from a photo line-up.
Officers took Keenan into custody at his home yesterday afternoon. At the time of his arrest, Stanley was wearing a black pair of sneakers which matched the description of a pair of sneakers that were stolen from the victim.
The investigation is ongoing. Additional charges/arrests are pending.
