Farmington Hills Man Faces Charges in Lincoln Park Home Invasion

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy alleges that Justin M. Acosta, 18, and Xavier M. Jones, 22, of Onondaga, broke into a Lincoln Park home on Nov. 7.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy announced that Justin M. Acosta, 18, of Farmington Hills, and Xavier M. Jones, 22, of Onondaga face charges of Assault with Intent to Murder, Armed Robbery and Home Invasion First Degree in connection with a home invasion in Lincoln Park. 

Jones has also been charged with Larceny of a Firearm, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Felony Firearm.   

According to a press release from Worthy's office, the defendants broke into a home in the 1400 block of Fort Park Street in Lincoln Park, at around 9:40 a.m. on Nov. 7. The 69-year-old home owner and the defendants exchanged gunfire, and the defendants ran away with a hand gun that was stolen from the home. The 69-year-old was unharmed and immediately called the police.

Jones and Acosta were arrested by the Lincoln Park police shortly after the incident. The two were arraigned on Friday and remain in jail in the 25th District Court. A preliminary exam is scheduled Nov. 20.

These days, I see home invasion stories in the news way too often. Usually intruders just kick-in the door. In my opinion, the most effective and least expensive thing you can do to protect yourself is to add good door security hardware to your doors to make them as secure as possible. You can get what's called a Door Security Pro ( http://www.DoorSecurityPro.com ) which will stop door kick-ins. It's a long, thick metal plate that reinforces wooden door frames which is what usually breaks when someone kicks in a door.
