On Thursday, February 23, at approximately 2:35 a.m., officers responded to the 800 block of Thera Drive in reference to a residential breaking and entering call for service. 

Upon arrival, the victim advised that a known man struck him in the head and forced his way into his home. The suspect, identified as Brewer, took cash from the victim and then forced a woman who was inside the home to leave with him. 

Once outside, Brewer fired shots at the home and left the scene in a vehicle.   

Information and evidence gathered during the course of the investigation led detectives in identifying Brewer as the suspect involved in this case. Officers located the female victim unharmed near her home.

It appears that the victim and suspect were known to each other.

On Friday, Brewer turned himself into the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Department where he remains in custody.
