They allegedly held victims at gunpoint but now two suspects in a weekend home invasion are behind bars.
Lubbock Police arrested Davon Perez Wednesday afternoon. It is the second arrest in the case in less than 24-hours.
Detectives attempted to serve 17-year-old Davon Perez an arrest around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, but he took off. Officers arrested him about a block away in a parking lot in the 2100 block of 50th Street. Perez is the second suspect to be arrested in connection with a weekend home invasion. NewsChannel 11 cameras rolled as Lubbock SWAT assisted police in Donovan Sauceda's arrest around 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
"Mr. Perez was present during yesterday's search warrant. Information was developed throughout this morning and throughout today (Wednesday) that gave detectives enough evidence and cause to obtain a warrant for his arrest," Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department said.
Stevens says Perez and Sauceda, who is 19-years-old, allegedly entered a home in the 4000 block of 66th Street Sunday morning. Investigators say they held the victims at gunpoint and took cells phones, electronics and a wallet.
Stevens says at this point the suspects may be linked to other robberies. But the case is still under investigation.
Both suspects are charged with aggravated robbery. They face a half million-dollar bond.
