Century Man Arrested For Armed Home Invasion

February 20, 2018

A Century man has been charged in connection with a local home invasion robbery with a firearm.

Kendrick Jamar Washington is accused of stealing about $1,500 in cash and an unknown quantity of drugs after forcing his way into a home in the 9500 block of Ivey Street.

Washington allegedly knocked on the female victim’s door about 4 a.m. while dressed in a dark colored hoodie and camouflage pants. As she was closing the door, he pulled the door back and shoved the female backwards, according to an arrest report. He then allegedly pulled a gun and pointed it the victim’s face while demanding money.

The victim told deputies she had about $1,500 in her purse because she had just cashed her paycheck at her employer and not yet deposited it into the bank.

Washington is being held without bond in the Escambia County Jail.

    Bet she knows him! Who opens the door at that hour to a stranger without a gun in their hand. My first instinct would be to lock myself in my room then call the police. Drag my dresser to block door because my fear and adrenaline would allow me to do so.

    I’m so thankful that it wasn’t my house. But rest assured, whether he knows it or not, he should be thankful also. I promise you he wouldn’t have to worry about being arrested if it had been.

    There’s more to this story. Regardless of the details, no one ever has the right to push their way inside of someone’s home, put a gun to them, etc.

    “an unknown quantity of drugs”

    Wonder if these were legal prescription or illegal illicit drugs? Not sure about others but I can tell you within a pill or two just how many prescription meds are left in my bottles.

    Yea sure just cashed check and hadn’t deposited it into the bank yet. Most people just deposit check in bank instead of cashing it and then deposit.
