Elkhart man pleads guilty in April home invasion
GOSHEN — A man charged with robbery and burglary in connection with a home invasion in Elkhart pleaded guilty Thursday morning, Aug. 7, in Elkhart’s Circuit Court.
Devon Davis, 21, agreed to plead guilty to robbery for a stipulated sentence of 15 years in prison. Davis’ burglary charge will be dismissed.
Davis and his co-defendant, Marquise Curry, 24, were arrested early April 12 after police had responded to 20 East Apartments for reports of a home invasion.
According to the probable cause affidavit for Davis and Curry's arrest, the victims of the incident told police they were cooking in the early morning when two men forced their way into their apartment.
One had a handgun, and the other had a short brown rifle. The two men pointed guns at their heads and demanded money from them. The suspects took just more than $100 in cash.
Marquise and Curry were pulled over by an officer and were arrested on outstanding warrants.
During interrogation, Curry told police he and Davis broke into the apartment at 20 East.
Curry, who was also charged with robbery and burglary, is scheduled to be in court for his next hearing Nov. 6.
Davis’ sentencing hearing was scheduled for Sept. 4.
