BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A Bossier City man is charged in a home invasion at a local apartment complex, because police say he provided the car used by the man accused in the crime to get away.

It happened on July 17. 21-year-old Verndell Dewayne Winn is already charged with July 17 home invasion at the Cloverdale Apartments.

Winn is accused of forcing his way into a residence at the Cloverdale Apartments and attempting to rob a man and a woman there while armed with two handguns. The couple's young child was also inside the apartment at the time.

Detectives say that, during the encounter Winn, struck the male victim in the head with one of the weapons and then fled without taking anything. The suspect, identified by police as Winn, was seen on security camera video getting into a burnt orange-colored Mitsubishi Eclipse and driving off.

Police say 30-year-old Kenneth Wayne Johnson provided that vehicle to Winn. Now, Johnson is facing the same home invasion charge as Winn. He was booked into Bossier City Jail and later transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility. His bond is set at $45,000.
