KILLEEN, TX — Two teens have been arrested for allegedly entering a Killeen home through an open bedroom window and holding three people at gunpoint.

Around 1:43 a.m. on February 23, the Killeen Police Department responded to the 1400 block of Stephen Street in reference to an aggravated robbery.

The initial investigation revealed that two unknown male suspects entered a home through an open bedroom window. There were three people home at the time- a 72-year-old man, a 74-year-old woman and a 16-year-old man.

KPD says one of the suspects struck the 72-year-old man in the head with a handgun when confronted. The suspects then held the three residents at gunpoint as they stole electronics and money.

KPD says the suspects also stole the owner's vehicle. The vehicle has been recovered.

The department's Violent Crime Unit were able to identify the suspects involved. The case was presented to the Bell County District Attorney's office, and a complaint was issued on both suspects charging aggravated robbery.

On March 3, warrants for the two suspects were issued. They have been identified as 17-year-old Jason Lomas, Jr. of Killeen and 17-year-old Jordan Xavier Bennett of Killeen.

On March 4, Lomas, Jr. was arrested. He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke and his bond was set at $100,000. He is currently in the Bell County Jail.

Bennett was located in Marble Falls, TX, by the U.S. Marshal's Lone Star Fugitive Task Force on March 5 after he fled the area. He was arrested and is currently in the Burnett County Jail.
