One Suspect Arrested In Home Invasion & Robbery, Second Still On The Run

It was a scary night for residents of one apartment when two men armed with a semi-automatic rifle and handgun forced their way inside.

The suspects held a male victim at Hunters Landing Apartments in New Bern at gunpoint Sunday night while they forced the female victim to get her purse from her car. They took off after getting money.

Police later determined the same suspects robbed a man at gunpoint in the parking lot.

Police arrested 21 year-old Jamaal Martrell Jones of Bayboro with several charges, including burglary, robbery and kidnapping.

Police are still looking for 21 year-old Travis Sconyers of New Bern. They consider him to be armed and dangerous.

    Don't judge them by what they've done??? What else can one be judged on?

    There would have been no such charges pinned on me. I had nothing to do with it & had no idea that it was going to happen. Otherwise, it wouldn't have happened because I wouldn't have let it. Don't judge me based on who my friends are, nor should you judge them based on what they've done. I've already made that point very clear. I'm done leaving comments up here because I have nothing left to say. It's over, it's done. Way worse things are happening in the world and those are more important than the poor decisions of two boys.

    "Mom": Yes, I'm serious. The one that's already in custody is my best friend. Quite honestly, he's one of the greatest guys I know and I will never understand what lead him to do this. I, however, am a firm believer in not judging people for the mistakes they make. Yes, that was a very POOR mistake and I'm by no means trying to justify what they've done. I simply feel like people should be as equally sympathetic for the families of the boys as they are for the victims because the families are not to blame for what the boys have done. Only the boys can take the blame for that and now they have to deal with the consequences. It's not like I said they should both get off the hook because that's not how I feel. They did the crime, they now have to do the time.

    Anyone who lives alone (ESPECIALLY women) should be armed and trained in self-defense, and should be ready and able to defend themselves when attacked by armed, lawless thugs. End of discussion. the victim of this robbery was lucky that the only thing she lost was her money--this story could have ended a LOT worse...

    @ Crystal: innocent until proven guilty... one of the core beliefs of this country's foundation is the only thing preventing me from going off on your "great guys" comment.
