Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a home invasion robbery on Pine Grove Drive in Palm Coast on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 17.

The victim told dispatchers that his nephew, 20-year-old Alexander Devonte Brown, knocked on his door. Once inside, Brown pulled out a handgun and forced the victim at gunpoint onto the ground. Brown then allowed two other males wearing hoods covering their faces into the residence. The three suspects proceeded to steal cash, jewelry and other items from the home.

The suspects reportedly stole more than $6,300-worth of items and $1,800 in cash from the residence before fleeing. Deputies secured the area and issued a ‘be on the look-out’ for Brown and the two other suspects to Volusia County and surrounding areas.

Detectives secured an arrest on Thursday, Sept. 19, warrant for Brown for home invasion robbery with a firearm and grand theft with a bond of $110,000.

Brown lives in Daytona Beach and was recently arrested in Volusia County. On Aug. 27, Brown was taken into custody under a Baker Act and just two days later was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest after assaulting a security officer during his stay in the hospital. In April, he was arrested in Volusia County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

“This is a dangerous guy who doesn’t think twice about using violence to get what he wants,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “I am thankful that the victim managed to escape this situation unharmed. We need to act fast before someone else is not so lucky. My advice to Alexander Brown and the other suspects is to turn yourselves in. We will find you and if you run, you will just go to jail tired.”
