Deputies say they have one man in custody and are looking for two more after a home invasion Wednesday night. The man held is 25-year-old Jason Jerome Allsbrooks.

Pitt County deputies say it happened at a home on Scott Lane, outside of Greenville, and the victims were told to get on the floor and were robbed.

One victim tells WITN News that she and a friend were watching TV around 10:30 p.m. when they heard a knock at the door. She thought it was her son, who had just left. Instead two armed men broke the door down and asked for her safe. The woman says the gunmen forced her to open the safe, taking rings, $300 in cash and two cell phones. During the robbery they were told to lie on the floor with pillows over their heads.

The victim tells us there was recently substantially more money in the safe and she thinks the robbers knew about that.

A N.C. Department of Corrections inmate search revealed Allsbrooks has prior convictions on at least three felony charges including possession of a firearm by a felon and selling schedule II narcotics.
