A 20-year-old man is wanted on charges of especially aggravated robbery in connection to an Antioch home invasion.

Two men were pistol whipped and robbed in Irma Drive Monday night.

The victims, two men ages 53 and 27, were inside the home when two armed men barged inside through an unlocked door.

Both victims were ordered to the floor, struck with a gun and demanded to hand over money.

The suspects, one of which has been identified as 20-year-old Markeith Smith, fled with cash, a cell phone, a game system and a Honda Odyssey minivan.

Authorities state the minivan was recovered Tuesday on Bowfield Court.

Detectives stated they are still trying to identify the second suspect.

Anyone with information on Markeith Smith’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Emergency Communications Center at 862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
