Charleston County deputies arrested and charged two more men in connection with a Johns Island home invasion in October in which a woman and her grandson were held at gunpoint.
DeAngelo L. Green, 19, of Prosperity Road and Anthony Z. Heyward, 19, of Traywick Avenue were arrested and charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, kidnapping, armed robbery and first-degree burglary, sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said.
The arrests were made Thursday and Friday. Two other men previously were arrested in that crime.
A 49-year-old woman and her 6-year-old grandson were at their home on Mary Ann Point Road when three men armed with two pistols forced their way inside at 1:35 a.m. Oct. 20, Brady said.
The men pointed a gun at the woman’s head, demanded money and debit cards, and rummaged through the home for about 20 minutes, an incident report states.
As the men started to leave the home, the woman’s 29-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son arrived, the report states.
The family told deputies that the men fired several shots at the ceiling and ordered them to the floor.
Deputies said the men ran from the home toward a nearby wooded area.
A Charleston police officer who was on patrol in the area stopped a suspicious car containing two men.
Lataj Montese Maxwell, 28, of Brigger Hill Road on Wadmalaw Island and Jarrell Montsho Bailey, 18, of Bohicket Road on Johns Island were arrested and charged with first-degree burglary, kidnapping, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Deputies said Heyward invaded the home alongside Maxwell and Bailey.
Green acted as a driver and had knowledge of the crime being committed by the other three men, Brady said.
A judge set Green’s bail at $350,000, and Heyward’s at $300,000, Brady said.
Both Green and Heyward are being held at the Charleston County jail.
