JONESBORO, Ark. – A mother reported her two daughters being the victim of a terrifying ordeal Saturday evening in Jonesboro.

Officers were flagged down at about 6:00 p.m. Saturday at the 1600-block of Cedar Heights. A woman reported her two girls, 11 and 12, were held at gunpoint in a home invasion.

The mother led police to the girls, who both described to officers a man answering to the name of “Quincey” had came to the residence at around 2 p.m. and asked if another man was there. When he learned the man was not, Quincey left and shortly returned, this time with company.

Two men, described as black males, one wearing a white shirt over his face and another wearing a black bandanna over his, entered the house with Quincey. The man with the black bandanna reportedly pulled a silver handgun out, chambered a round, then pointed it at the girls and told them to get on the ground. However, the men heard a noise upstairs and got scared, fleeing the scene.

The victims described Quincey as having a tattoo of some type of necklace around his neck and chest. The girls did not know his last name or the identities of the other two perpetrators. They did say one of the suspects was tall.

The mother told officers she reported the incident four hours after it transpired because she had just learned about it from her children.

The suspects face felony aggravated burglary charges.
