Another person sentenced in Pittsburg armed home invasion
PITTSBURG, Kan. — Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso says Malik Robinson, 20, has been sentenced for his role in an armed home invasion.
A judge sentenced Robinson to three years in prison for robbery.
On March 11th, 2019, around 5:00 am, four suspects, armed with guns, forced their way into a home at 1405 N. Joplin Street in Pittsburg, Kansas. While inside, police say they subdued three occupants, physically injuring one of them in the process.
Police say the suspects forced the occupants to sit in one room of the home while they rummaged through the residence looking
for valuables. The suspects reportedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash, firearms and other items. Police say the suspects threatened the victims with physical harm before leaving the home.
The Prosecutor’s Office charged all four suspects: Kylee Shane Beachner, of Galesburg, Kansas; Malik Monta Robinson, of Parsons, Kansas; Daelon Lee Hendricks, of Parsons, and Jeremy Stringfellow, also of Parsons.
Charges include aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, aggravated burglary and felony theft.
Kylee Beachner was sentenced in Septebmer 2019 to four years in prison for aggravated robbery and aggravated intimidation of a witness. The courts are also requiring her to register as a violent offender because a firearm was used in the crime.
Police believe the victims were specifically targeted and that this was not a random act.
