COLUMBIA – Four suspects were arrested in connection with the burglary and assault involving the Columbia Police SWAT team that took place Aug. 11.

Officers responded to a disturbance reported at 2:17 p.m. Thursday at 908 Huntridge Drive. Two male residents had been injured.

A vehicle linked to the suspects led officers to a second location, 3709 Blue Cedar, where the SWAT team was called around 3:30 p.m. because of the suspects’ refusal to exit. A standoff lasted 25 minutes before the suspects surrendered.

According to a news release from the Columbia Police Department, the following four people were arrested on charges of first-degree burglary and second-degree assault:

  • Harold Warren III, 18.
  • Tyron Martz Armstrong Jr., 19.
  • Okoye T. West, 19.
  • Jacob Hayes Hudson, 21.

Warren and Hudson live at the second residence on Blue Cedar. Hudson drove the vehicle that was later traced to the house, according to the news release.

The man who allowed the first suspect into his home was seen at the University Hospital emergency room for two teeth that were knocked out, bruises on his head and a laceration on his lip, according to the news relase. The second male resident sustained an injury to his knee.
