Grand jury indicts home invasion suspects

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Chautauqua County Grand Jury has indicted two of the suspects from a July 1st home invasion in Jamestown.

Police exchanged gunfire with the suspects as they fled a home on Falconer Street. A weapon was later found outside of the home and authorities believe it was the weapon used to fire on an officer.

Jaqwan Martin and Maqwan Martin, both 23 and from Buffalo, are facing several charges, including three counts of first degree aggravated sexual sexual abuse, first degree criminal sexual act, four counts of first degree burglary, six counts of first degree robbery, two counts of first degree criminal use of a firearm, two counts of second degree criminal possession of a weapon and four counts of second degree assault. Both are being held on $2 million property bail or $1 million cash bail.

Police expect to make more arrests this week. They report several suspects are in custody in Chautauqua County and in Buffalo on parole violations.

Anyone with information is asked to call 483-8477.
