PEORIA (WEEK) — Peoria Police have made arrested three suspects after a home invasion and armed robbery in Peoria earlier this week.

It happened Tuesday, August 10, when a woman who told 25 News she did not want to be identified was returning to her home in the 1400 block of W. Hanssler Ct.

A Ring doorbell camera recorded the attack before she could close her door.

A man followed her inside, pointed a gun at her, and demanded her car keys, while a second suspect waited outside.

One suspect fled in the woman’s car, while the other followed in one that was already waiting.

On Friday night, Peoria Police released new details in the case, saying that PPD officers spotted the stolen car later that night, and began chasing it, but had to stop due to rainy weather and the suspect’s high speed.

After that, PPD Detectives began searching for three suspects: a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old male, and 18-year-old Brandon McGrew.

The 16-year-old was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of criminal trespass to a vehicle and was taken to the Peoria County Juvenile Detention Center.

On Friday, McGrew was arrested for home invasion, armed robbery, and motor vehicle theft.

PPD say the third suspect, the 17-year-old, is still at large.

No information on either of the teenage suspects will be released due to their ages.
