Police searching for fifth suspect in violent home invasion
UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio (Joe Webb) -- Police track down and arrest four people tied to a violent home invasion robbery.
Three women and one man are locked up in connection with the incident Friday morning. A young man was seriously wounded by a gunshot and two women were also assaulted. Local 12 now knows a lot more about the home invasion in Union Township.
It was planned, at least one person was familiar with the home and one suspect is still on the loose. The prosecutor says 20-year-old Jasmine Ledford dated a friend of the victim and knew where to find cash and valuable property in the house. Investigators claim she helped plan the robbery on Tealtown Road that left the man shot and critically injured.
Ledford and two others are charged with aggravated robbery. 21-year-old Dakim Dorsey allegedly drove the car to the home invasion. 19-year-old Feshawn Napier reportedly went in the house and rummaged through things before running away when the victim was shot.
Napier's mother was in court and angry. Not at the system, angry with her daughter.
Erica Blackmon, Napier's mother, said, "Call somebody. We will help you. So if you don't want the help and you're out doing this, you're going to suffer the repercussions of your actions. And that's the truth. That's why I'm here to show her the repercussions of her actions. If I tell you to go to school, go to school. Don't be out here doing this cause now look at you. Reality sets in, didn't it?"
23-year-old Deonna Welch was charged with receiving stolen property. She reportedly tried to cash some stolen checks. All four are from Cincinnati.
According to court documents Ledford, Napier and one other person went in 4811 Tealtown Road about 9:30 on Friday. During the robbery, the young man was shot, his mother cut on the arm and a female friend beaten up. They got away with cash and a checkbook.
Juanita Justice lives next door and is grateful four people are locked up saying, "I'm glad. I'm glad. I told her yesterday I hope they get them all and lock'em up and get 'em off the street so they won't do this to somebody else. I've lived here almost 22 years and I've never been afraid."
Justice says she talked with the shooting victim's mother yesterday. She says they plan to move out.
The judge set high bonds on all four suspects in court Monday morning. Union Township Police say Cincinnati Police were instrumental in finding and arresting the suspects.
The investigation is still underway and at least one other suspect is still on the loose.
