Police have charged two men for an armed home invasion in Mississauga last month.
On May 25, two men armed with guns forced their way into a residence in East Brampton, Ont., with one of the men forcing entry into the home, while the other waited in a nearby vehicle.
With all three men wielding weapons, they entered the home and held a resident and a teen female at gunpoint. The men exited the residence and drove away in the vehicle.
Detectives from Peel police’s east division, who investigated the incident, arrested 24-year-old Jordan Scott, of Brampton, on Thursday. He has been charged with robbery with a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, two counts of assault with a weapon, unauthorized possession of a firearm, attempting to commit an indictable offence, arson to property valuable to the public peace, uttering threats and a breach of recognizance.
Also arrested and charged with participating in a criminal group were Alaa Gaydam and Jordan Richards, both 21, both of Mississauga.
Scott and Richards are scheduled to appear in court on Saturday.
Police ask anyone with information that may assist in the investigation to contact them at 905-453-2121, ext. 5944, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
