Two more charged in Jamestown home invasion, sexual assault

Jamestown Police Department

Two additional suspects have been indicted by a Chautauqua County Grand Jury for their roles in a brutal home invasion robbery and sexual assault in Jamestown.

Although authorities have not released many details, they say a group of men invaded a home at 188 Falconer Street about 3 a.m. on July 1, 2004 and assaulted the residents inside the home. They say new information developed through the collection of electronic and forensic evidence. Four others have already been charged and convicted in the case.
