Detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department have arrested Shakim Ravon Bazemore Young, 27, on charges of first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon in reference to a chaotic home invasion last month in the 800 block of Rembrandt Drive.

Police said it happened on March 26 about 11:15 p.m. Two masked suspects reportedly forced their way into the home, one armed with a pistol and the other with a shotgun.

The suspects held the occupants at gunpoint, forced them to move to different parts of the home, and demanded money. Police said the occupants struggled with the suspects, and the suspects discharged their weapons and fled the scene.

Police said the gunfire didn't injure anyone inside the home.

Young, of Branchwood Circle, was apprehended without incident on Friday by FPD detectives during a traffic stop.



He was taken to the Cumberland County Detention Center where he is being held on a $110,000 secured bond.

Detectives continue to investigate this incident and are seeking the public's assistance with identifying the second suspect.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the second suspect, or other details is asked to contact Detective DeShields with the Fayetteville Police Department at (910) 580-3016 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
