Two men are accused in a month-long robbery spree. Victims say they had masks, guns and a taser too.
Miguel Brutus and Dominic Brown each face 13 armed robbery counts for a series of home invasions in Tallahassee ... including two in the same night.
Arrest papers say the most recent happened February 21st at the Indian Oaks West Town Homes on Jackson Bluff Road.
Arrest papers say three men broke down the back door and ransacked the house. Victims told police the robbers struck a sleeping man in the head with the butt of a rifle, forced another to the ground and placed a dumbell on the back of his neck saying he'd be shot if it fell off.
Victims at Indian Village off Jackson Bluff say back on January 29th, someone kicked down their door. Arrest papers say the men who lived there came face to face with three men who carried a shotgun, a crow bar and a stun gun.
Residents at the Villa Dylano apartments on Hayden Road answered a knock at the door February 5th to find three men with bandanas, hoodies and guns, court records show.
That same night, arrest papers say, three men in masks and gloves burst into an apartment at 1505 West Tharpe Street and stole two gaming systems, money and more.
Brown and Brutus are both being held in the Leon County Jail on $200,000 bond.
We have no word on the third suspect.
