Man Fires Shots at Robbery Suspects After W. Columbus Home Invasion
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Two robbery suspects were forced to run for their lives after a victim grabbed a gun during a home invasion Thursday morning on the West Side.
Police arrested Michael Singer and Anthony Six in the area of Broad Street and Warren Avenue after they chased from a S. Ogden Avenue home by an armed man who fired shots during the pursuit, according to investigators.
Singer and Six allegedly gained entry to the home by forcing an man to lead them there after robbing him outside a nearby store.
After Anthony and Six entered the home, they were confronted by the boyfriend of the robbery victim's sister, who had taken hold of a gun, according to police. The armed man did not fire any shots inside the house, but did shoot at the suspects as he chased them down the street.
The children of the robbery victim's sister were inside the home when the suspects made their entrance, according to their mother, who told ABC 6/FOX 28 she immediately rushed her kids outside when the danger of the situation became apparent.
"That's the first thing I did, I had to get [the children] out of the house," the woman said. "They didn't even have shoes on. I didn't know if they were going to come back. I had to get my kids out of the house because I saw guns flying around."
Singer and Six were carrying two knives, along with items stolen from the robbery victim, when they were arrested, according to investigators. Police also found a knife near a fence the suspects allegedly climbed while fleeing the scene of the home invasion.
Singer and Six are scheduled to appear in court on Friday morning.
