SARASOTA Co., Fla (WWSB) – Two men were arrested after detectives connected them with a home invasion from April in Sarasota.

Deputies first responded to 3234 Restful Lane on April 25, just after 2 a.m., for reports of an armed home invasion.

Two men kicked in the front door of the home, held victims at gunpoint with a rifle, and stole one of the victims' fanny packs, according to neighbors.

One of the victims told detectives he recognized one of the suspects as an employee at a nearby convenience store. Detectives investigated and identified William Robbins-Rosokow, 21, as the lead suspect in the home invasion.

He was arrested on April 28 on an outstanding warrant for violation of probation. Robbins-Rosokow admitted to planning the robbery and recruiting Chance Terrill, 21, and Terrill's father, to help him.

Detectives made contact with Terrill's father who admitted to providing the gun used in the robbery and traveling with his son and Robbins-Rosokow to the victims' home at the time of the crime.

Both Robbins-Rosokow and Terrill are charged with two counts each of Armed Home Invasion Robbery.

They remain in custody without bond. Terrill is designated a prolific offender who's been arrested several times in Sarasota County for various crimes including Battery, Burglary and Fleeing to Elude.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
