Three suspects accused in Youngstown home invasion indicted

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Three people accused in a Youngstown home invasion and beating were indicted in the Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas on Thursday.

33-year-old Latrell Jackson, 34-year-old Odis Simmons, and 29-year-old Brittany Thomas were all three indicted on counts of Aggravated Burglary and Robbery.

Jackson and Simmons were also indicted for two counts each of Repeat Violent Offender Specification.

Jackson and Simmons were booked into the Mahoning County Jail, weeks after the alleged crime. 

Jackson and Simmons were placed in the county jail on Thursday, September 6, after U.S. Marshals traveled to Denver, Colorado to get them. 

Brittany Thomas was previously arrested in Youngstown.

The three suspects are accused of invading a home in the 3600 block of Beechwood Place.

According to a police report, the man's niece called officers telling them that her uncle was being beaten by two men in his home. 

The niece said that her uncle had camera's in his home, and she was able to see the videos from the inside of the home on her phone.

When police spoke to the man who was allegedly beaten, he said that he was inside his home with a woman he did not know well, when two men entered his home and grabbed him. 

Authorities reported that Jackson and Simmons started punching the man whose home they were in and demanding money, while Thomas ran off with his cell phone.

According to the police report, Jackson and Simmons ran off after hearing the man's niece pull in the driveway. 

Simmons, Jackson, and Thomas were all wanted for aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary. 

The three now await court dates.
