16-Year-Old Armed Home Invasion Suspect In Jail

SPOKANE, Wash. - The teenage suspect involved in a recent armed home invasion robbery is in jail.

The Spokane Police SWAT team made an early morning raid at a home in the 2600 block of E. Sinto, where they arrested the 16 year old.

His street name is ‘Nike,' but court documents show his real name is Brettly Sanderson.

Court documents show he, and two other people, forced their way into an apartment in the 2900 block of N. Hogan on June 6th.  They are each armed – one with a sawed off shotgun, the other two with revolvers.  They ordered the six people who were home to hit the floor, and beat several of them in the face and head with the guns.

The suspects started yelling ‘Where's the money?' and ransacked the apartment, before making off with cash, computers, a gaming system – and even the victim's car.

That car was later found miles away, without it's wheels and tires.

The victims, who know Sanderson as a loose acquaintance, identified him as one of the suspects.

He was supposed to be arraigned in juvenile court today, but that has been pushed back per the defense attorney's request.

At the time of the home invasion on June 6th, police said the suspect descriptions and style of robbery matched other recent crimes, including the takeover-style robbery of the McDonalds in the South Hill, near Ferris High School in late May.

However, police are still investigating if, in fact, there is a connection.

The other two suspects involved are still on the run.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Feel like you have to keep swatting bugs away when you've been walking outside this week? What you might be calling gnats, are really blue ash aphids. And right now they are more active than ever, because it's mating season. KHQ met a couple who noticed the blue ash aphids right when they started their walk in the park.
