Two men have been arrested for their roles in a violent home invasion in Escambia County.

According to the report, approximately three armed men wearing ski-masks “broke the door” of a locked door at a home located in the Brownsville area on Cervantes and Z Street on June 9th.

A woman sitting in the living room told deputies she watched three masked mean approach the door, the report stated.

One man pointed his gun at the couch where she was sitting and fired off stating “that’s just to show you I mean business.”

The report revealed one suspect went into the kitchen, one stayed in the living room and another went into the bedroom.

According to the report, a man in an “orange” ski mask, later identified as Damon Forehand, went into the bedroom demanding cash for the unidentified victim.

The suspect kept asking “where the money, where the money."

The report also revealed the masked gunman kicked the man in the jaw and pistol whipped him.

According to the report, the suspect fired five to six rounds shooting the victim multiple times in the left hip, left leg and the left hand.

The victim’s wife called 911 and grabbed a gun after the suspects left, the report states.

Escambia County deputies said the victims remembered key features of the suspects and clothing they were wearing.

On June 11th, reports came in stating Damon Forehand, 24, and his older brother, Michael Lindsey, 34, were involved.

The victim said he would never “forget the eyes and face of the man who shot him,” referring to Forehand.

Both Forehand and Lindsey have a long criminal history.

Forehand is being held without bond.

Lindsey is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, damage to property and home invasion/robbery.

A third suspect is still on the loose. The investigation is ongoing.
