Anderson faces arraignment in armed robbery of residence

Aug 03, 2012 (Superior Telegram - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- One of the men accused of rushing into a Superior residence and holding a gun to an occupant's head was bound over for arraignment Wednesday in Douglas County Circuit Court.

Trent William Anderson, 21, of Superior faces felony charges of armed burglary, armed robbery with threat of force and three counts of false imprisonment, all as a party to a crime, stemming from the July 22 incident in the 1100 block of Hughitt Avenue.

According to the criminal complaint: Three people, two men and one woman, were in the residence when they heard a knock on the back door. When they opened the door, two black males started yelling and rushed into the apartment. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and ordered the two male victims to the floor. The other suspect, later identified as Anderson, ordered the female into the bedroom, then shoved her in.

The man with the gun held it to one victim's head while he was on the floor. He and Anderson took everything from the male victims' pockets including car and house keys, an iPhone, sunglasses, a cell phone and a wallet. They went out the back door and attempted to get into the victim's car, but the car's alarm sounded and they ran away.

Anderson remains in custody at the Douglas County Jail. Cash bail of $10,000 has been ordered in the case. His next court appearance is set for Sept. 14.

The second suspect remains at large, according to police, who are continuing to follow up on leads. He is described as a light-skinned black male, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 with a possibly shaved head. The suspect also had tattoos on both arms as wells as the neck and chest area.
