Suspect In Alpena Home Invasion Arrested
The Alpena Police Department says a man involved in a home invasion on Apr. 27th has been arrested.
The department says Allan Hughes, 28, of Wyoming was apprehended Tuesday in Scottsdale, Arizona after a week long search.
Police say that Hughes, along with another suspect, entered a home on the 400 block of South Second Avenue in the early morning on Apr. 27, and demanded cash and other items from a man and a woman.
When the victims would not comply, the man was beaten in the head with the suspect’s gun. The suspects then ran from the home in a gray-colored car which was later abandoned behind a home near Ford and Miller Street.
The two men had evaded police officers despite an search of the area, and their guns were recovered later in the morning on Miller Street.
Hughes was described to have a large red “GR” tattoo on his neck.
The Alpena County Prosecutor’s Office has issued a seven-count felony warrant for Hughes’ arrest Friday, Apr. 30.
Hughes faces armed robbery with serious injury, home invasion in the first degree, unlawful imprisonment, assault with a dangerous weapon (felonious assault), carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, possession of a firearm by a felon, a felony firearm charge and a third offense habitual offender notice.
Police say the investigation is on-going and officers are still looking for the second suspect as well as anyone who may have aided the two men.
