INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office announced on Wednesday that new charges have been filed against a suspect charged in two brutal home invasions in October of last year.

Adrian Anthony was previously charged in the October home invasions and assaults on Spring Mill Road and East 79th Street and the November murder of Robbie Gibson. He’s now charged in a Nov. 19 robbery and attempted robbery of two women.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced the new charges of attempt robbery, a Class A felony, robbery, a Class B felony, and criminal confinement, a Class C felony. The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Nov. 19, 2013, where Anthony is accused of approaching two women and their children in the parking lot of an apartment complex armed with a handgun.

Courts documents state Anthony threatened a woman saying, “Give me all you got or I’m going to shoot you and your baby.” Anthony then hit the woman a number of times in the head with his gun, causing her to lose consciousness and fall while holding the child.

During the incident, Anthony fired a single shot into the air. A spent shell casing was recovered from the scene and later determined to have been fired from the same firearm as that of a casing recovered from the Nov. 27, 2013 scene of the shooting death of Robbie Gibson on North Gray Street, a release said.

Anthony was arrested on Dec. 1 and is still in custody. A woman believed to be his girlfriend during the incidents was charged in December with assisting a criminal for helping Anthony evade arrest after a warrant for his arrest was issued.

An initial hearing on this new case is scheduled for Thursday.
