Two Men Arrested in New Year’s Day Home Invasion

Police have made arrests following a home invasion and sexual assault that took place on New Year’s Day in Tuscaloosa.  Andrew Bryant, 19, was arrested Saturday on charges of first-degree robbery and first-degree rape.  He is currently being held in the Tuscaloosa County jail on $120,000 bond.  James Tristen Bostic, 19, was arrested on Friday on first-degree robbery and unrelated charges of resisting arrest and robbery.

Investigators are still on looking for Christopher Terze Childs, 19, in connection to this case.  He currently has outstanding warrants for burglary and rape.

On January 1, 2014, Northport police were called to Willow Brook Trailer Park where they were told three men forced their way into mobile home around 6:00 a.m. before they sexually assaulted a woman and pistol-whipped two men.  The victims were treated for injuries at DCH Regional Medical Center.

The suspects may also be responsible for other burglaries that took place in Northport trailer parks in the hours before the robbery at Willow Brook, and police believe more arrests could still take place.

“The victims were all in different rooms. It’s possible that more people were involved.  If we can identify any other suspects, there could be more charges in this case,” said Lieutenant Kip Hart of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit.
