News Media: Escambia Man Who Threatened To ‘Blow The Baby’s Head Off’ During Home Invasion Robbery Facing Life Sentence
An Escambia County man identified as Darquavias Tyrell Brown, who threatened to “blow the baby’s head off” during a home invasion robbery, is facing up to life in prison after being convicted on multiple charges.
An Escambia County jury convicted Brown of home invasion robbery with firearm, one count of false verification of ownership or false identification to a pawnbroker where the jury found the value of the money received was $300 or greater, one count of false verification of ownership or false identification to a pawnbroker, and three counts of dealing in stolen property. The jury also found Brown to be in actual possession of a firearm which carries with it a 10 year minimum mandatory prison sentence.
Trouble started on April 9, 2018, in the early hours of the morning when Brown and two unknown individuals burst into an Escambia County home. He then threatened the residents with a firearm, including pointing the gun at a one year old infant and threatening to “blow the baby’s head off” if they did not give him the money. Brown started to ransack the house and made away with several watches, rings including the wedding rings off of the hand of one of the victims. a Playstation system, Playstation controller, and several games. Also, two vehicles were stolen from the residence and abandoned shortly thereafter. Brown pawned four of the stolen rings and one of the stolen watches at Capital Pawn several hours after the home invasion robbery.
Brown returned to the same pawn shop on April 13, 2018, and sold the stolen Playstation system and games. After being identified as a suspect, Brown was identified by one of the victims in a photo lineup as the individual who threatened them and the infant child with a firearm.
He will be sentenced in July.
Meanwhile, Brown has several prior convictions including convictions for carrying a concealed weapon, burglary, assault, resisting officer without violence, trespass and possession of controlled substance. He also has another case currently pending where he is charged with robbery armed with a firearm.
