Three men arrested for December home invasion robbery; the same three were previously arrested for shooting into the same apartment in a different incident

Antonio Marcellous Bowers, Jr., 20, Dekwan André Howard, 22, and Dennis Greg Singleton, Jr., 24, were arrested today on a home invasion robbery charge from an incident in December. The same three were arrested in December and charged with shooting into an occupied building.

According to the arrest report, the incident happened at about 10:00 p.m. on December 13 at Point West Apartments, at the same apartment they are accused of shooting into on December 28. A woman was alone in her boyfriend’s apartment and had been instructed to sell marijuana to a man while the boyfriend was away. The woman said that the man kept looking around the apartment and acting in a way that made her suspicious. After he left, she went into the bedroom and lay down with her back to the door. She said she heard a loud crash and saw a man later identified as Howard pointing a gun at her. When she tried to use her phone to call for help, she said the man took her phone from her.

She said a man later identified as Singleton was in the other bedroom, searching for and stealing items and that a third man, later identified as Bowers, also stole items that included a gun, cash, and marijuana. A second gun was also stolen.

Both stolen guns were recovered in Singleton’s vehicle during the investigation of the December 28 shooting, and the shell casings from that shooting matched the two stolen guns.

The victim told detectives that the intruders had entered by breaking a sliding glass door using what appeared to be a rust-colored vehicle jack; a rusted piece of a vehicle jack was later found in Howard’s car during the execution of a search warrant. The victim positively identified all three in separate photo lineups, and phone records for Singleton and Howard showed that they were in the area of Point West Apartments during the robbery.
