More charges laid following home-invasion
London police have laid more charges following a home-invasion style robbery on Saul Street last month.
On April 26, at 11:15 a.m., officers received information that a home invasion-style robbery had just occurred at an address on Saul Street.
Police say one of the individuals inside the residence was forcibly removed from the home at gun-point by the suspect. They fled the area in a vehicle.
An officer patrolling the area located the vehicle involved.
The officer attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver failed to stop for police. The officer attempted to follow the suspect vehicle, but due to safety concerns for both the vehicle occupants and the general public, attempts to stop the vehicle were discontinued.
The subsequent police investigation revealed that both the male victim and the suspect had left London and travelled to a location on Walker Road on the Oneida Nation of the Thames First Nation.
As a result, the London Police requested the assistance of the Ontario Provincial Police to attempt to locate the individuals involved.
After further investigation, the victim was located and transported to hospital for treatment of minor injuries as a result of this incident.
London police officers consider Marlon Antone ,29, a suspect in relation to this investigation.
In addition to a slew of charges Antone was wanted on for a previous incident, London laid the following through an arrest warrant:
• 2 x forcible confinement
• 2 x robbery with offensive weapon
• Use imitation firearm to commit an indictable offence
• Fail to comply with recognizance
Police believe that Antone may be in possession of a firearm, therefore use caution, do not approach him and call 9-1-1 immediately if seen.
The individuals involved are known to each other and this was not a random incident. The London Police continue to investigate.
Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call the London Police Service at (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
