Two teens booked after home invasion Friday
BATON ROUGE - Two teenagers were arrested, accused of home invasion Friday afternoon.
Corey Wiliams and Baylen Trim were charged with armed robbery, simple battery of persons with infirmities and resisting arrest. Saturday is Williams' birthday.
Deputies said a 79-year-old woman in the 10000 block of Woodland Oaks Drive said she answered her doorbell and Williams and Trim forced their way inside her home. She said one of them stuck a gun in her chest and pushed her to the ground. She told investigators, they demanded money from her purse but were not happy when she gave them $200.
The woman said one of the intruders exclaimed, "this is not all you have," and she gave them $3,000 from a drawer.
In arrest documents, deputies wrote they spotted Trim and Williams after getting a description from the victim. Authorities said the pair ran but were eventually detained.
Authorities reported Williams was in possession of $1,400 but no gun was found.
The home invasion happened in a newer development of homes along Clay Cut Bayou between Siegen and Bluebonnet and I-10 and Airline.
