18-year-old charged as adult in armed burglary, aggravated assault when he was 17

Lorenzo Joshua Johnson, Jr., who turned 18 on November 8, has been charged as an adult in an incident on October 28 in which he allegedly committed armed burglary and aggravated assault.

The charging documents allege that Johnson entered an apartment at Majestic Oaks with a handgun, with the intent of committing assault or battery. He is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition because he was previously convicted of an offense that would have been a felony if committed by an adult. Johnson then allegedly threatened two residents of the apartment and struck one of them. He also allegedly took the cell phone of one of the residents.

Johnson is being held on a combined bail of $340,000 on the charges.
