Toledo Police have identified two suspects accused of invading a home on Robinwood Avenue and holding a gun to a woman's head on Monday. Both men, William Barber and Deangelo Overton, were caught on surveillance video at a Gas-N-Go station trying to use the victim's stolen credit cards on Cherry and Bancroft.
Authorities hope the release of the names, along with the security footage, will prompt a tip from the public that will help them locate the suspects.
The victim of the home invasion told officers she returned to her duplex from trick-or-treating with her sister and niece and noticed the main door was not locked. When she entered the dining room, one of the men pointed a gun in her face and demanded money.
The police report says the victim said she only had $10 in her purse and "begged him to take it and not hurt her." One of the men threatened to shoot if she did not reveal the location of her money and jewelry.
One suspect took her purse, iPhone, business bag and the wedding ring from her finger. The other man approached her wearing a white mask and demanded more jewelry.
After leaving, the victim told police she was afraid to run from the duplex and her phone was stolen, so she went to her computer and messaged friends on Facebook for help.
The suspects are described as black males around 20 years in age. The first suspect is believed to be 5'6" and 150 pounds. He was wearing black pants, a tucked in black shirt and clean cut hair at the time of the robbery. Suspect number two is 5'8" tall and 170 pounds. At the time of the robbery, the man was wearing a white mask with black hair.
Anyone with information about the suspects or the crime should call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
