One person was hurt in a home invasion at a rowhome on South Fifth Street in Jeannette Friday, March 29, 2019. Three people were arrested.

Three teenagers were jailed Friday afternoon in connection with a Jeannette home invasion that left a man injured.

Police Chief Shannon Binda said investigators believe the trio targeted the South Fifth Street row home earlier in the day.

Larenzo Dayshawn Peddicord, 18, of Jeannette is charged with robbery, aggravated assault and burglary. Two juveniles — Jamar Miles, 17, of Pittsburgh and Jermaine A. Walker, 15, of Jeannette — are charged as adults with the same offenses plus theft, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest.

A 31-year-old man was hurt during the invasion shortly before 4 a.m. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital for injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.

Witnesses told police the suspects wore masks when they broke in, allegedly pointing a gun at a woman and trying to shoot her but the weapon did not go off, according to court papers.

One of the assailants yelled “where is all the weed … where is all the drugs?” according to the complaint.

One man was punched in the head multiple times and a second man escaped out a window, police said. The suspects took $20, an Xbox, car keys, cigarettes, a wallet, prescription medication and an iPhone, according to court papers.

Peddicord was being held at the Westmoreland County Prison on $500,000 bail. Walker’s bail was set at $20,000 and Miles’ at $40,000. Both juveniles were being held at the Regional Youth Services Center in Hempfield.

None had an attorney listed in online court records. Preliminary hearings are set for April 11.

Peddicord was arrested in early February after police said he and three juveniles beat a man in a city alley while an onlooker filmed it and posted it to Instagram. The next day, police found the video, which has since been removed, and a witness helped them identify the suspects.

Peddicord posted $15,000 bail in that case Feb. 11 and waived his right to a preliminary hearing on aggravated assault and related offenses. A May 1 hearing is set for Peddicord to be accepted into an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program that allows participants to have their records expunged if they complete certain court-mandated requirements.
