Arrests made in violent Clarksville home invasion

Two teens remain at large in December incident

CLARKSVILLE — Two teens remain at large following what has been described as a violent home robbery in December at a Clarksville home that has resulted in two recent arrests.

The Clarksville Police Department has reported that Jordan Amos, 22; Amy Brabandt, 17; Arron Davis, 19, and a 16-year-old girl conspired to rob a man at his Harrison Avenue home Dec. 19.

Amos had fled to Denver, but was later arrested and booked into the Clark County jail Monday, and released later the same day after a $5,000 court-cash bond payment was made.

Although she is a juvenile, Brabandt was placed in the jail March 20. A $1,500 payment was made toward her bond, and she was released Monday.

Both have been charged with two counts class B felony robbery.

Clarksville police reported that both Davis and the 16-year-old have active warrants for their arrest, but are believed to have separately left the state.

According to the probable cause affidavit leading to Amos’ arrest, the man who was robbed in his home reported that he had spent time with Brabandt at his apartment Dec. 18. The two had gone to a McDonald’s restaurant, and Brabandt had commented on how much money he carried in his wallet, he told police.

The two made plans the following day to hang out, and Brabandt told him that she would bring the 16-year-old girl along for one of his friends.

He reported that the following day, the two teenage girls came to the home to meet the man, his baby and his friend.

The man told police that at one point he went into his bedroom, and while there, two men, later identified as Amos and Davis, rushed into his apartment.

He reported seeing his friend run into another bedroom while carrying his child, when, “  ... Amos came back to his bedroom, carrying a pipe fashioned as a shotgun.”

The man told police Amos, “ ... immediately struck him in the head several times with the pipe, which resulted in profuse bleeding from his head,” according to the affidavit.

He said a fight ensued, and he and Amos ended up in a bathroom.

“He stated that while inside the bathroom, Arron Davis walked from room to room, looking for items of value,” according to the report. “[The man] advised that at one point Davis entered the bathroom and struck him with a lamp four to five times.”

He also reported Davis stole his wallet that including several hundred dollars.

The man told police he had got the upper hand in the struggle and had struck Amos with the pipe several times.

“He advised Amos asked for mercy so he stopped hitting him and then demanded that he give him all of his money back and exit his apartment,” according to the affidavit.

He told police he recovered less than half of the stolen money.

During the incident, the man reported, the two females had left the home.

BRABANDT'S INTERVIEW

Nearly two months later, on Feb. 14, police interviewed Brabandt at police headquarters with her mother present.

The teen told police she and the man had hung out together the day before the robbery, and that she had noticed the man carrying a significant amount of cash. Brabandt reported that before arriving at his home the following day, the man had contacted her about paying her for sex. She told police she declined the man’s offer, but arranged for him to have sex with the 16-year-old for a fee of $30.

Brabandt said the girl had told her she wanted more money for the act, and she informed her that she had seen him the day before with much more money. While Brabandt, Amos, Davis and the 16-year-old drove to the man’s home, they began planning the burglary, she told police.

“Brabandt advised that the plan was for her and [the 16-year-old] to go inside, and after entering, [the 16-year-old] would get [the man] naked so when Amos and Davis entered, he would be defenseless,” according to the affidavit.

Once the man was unclothed, the 16-year-old would text message Amos, signaling the men to enter the home.

“ ... Amos would choke [the man] out, and Davis would make sure that nothing else happened,” according the report.

The robbery did not go as planned, however.

She reported that after Amos and Davis entered the home, a fight began with the home’s resident overpowering Amos. She said at one point, Davis told the girls that they needed to leave because “ ... Amos was getting beat up.”

The four left the home with Amos leaving his cell phone behind.

While the 16-year-old and the Davis remain at large, both Amos and Brabandt have upcoming court dates in Clark County Circuit courts.

If the two are eventually found guilty of the two class B felonies that they have been charged, they could be sentenced to prison for up to 100 years.
