Police arrest one suspect in home invasion

DURHAM Sunday police arrested 33-year-old Christopher Keith Cook. He was wanted on numerous charges from an armed home invasion on Saturday night in the 1100 block of South Hoover Road.

Authorities say the arrest stems from a report that two masked men armed with guns broke into the residence around 8:30 p.m. and held 11 people, including three juveniles, at gunpoint. Several victims were assaulted before the two males fled with money and other items.

Cook, 33, is charged with first-degree burglary, assault inflicting serious injury, several counts of second-degree kidnapping and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon. He is also facing counts of assault by pointing a gun, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and going armed to the terror of the public.

He is being held in the Durham County Jail under a $2 million bond.

The second suspect, who has not been identified, is described as a light skin African-American man in his late teens or early 20s with short hair.

Anyone with information about the identity of the second suspect is asked to call Investigator A.M. Cristaldi at 560-4450, ext. 255 or CrimeStoppers at 683-1200.
