The third suspect in a Lincoln County B&E and assault case has been arrested. 25-year-old Amanda Lenee Brooks of Lincolnton was taken into custody yesterday (August 3) and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and breaking & entering to terrorize.
As reported by WHKY yesterday, the case involves a disturbance between neighbors that left two people with serious injuries. At about 10 p.m. Tuesday (August 1), Deputies responded to a residence on Hauss Road in Lincolnton. One of victims told Deputies she was at home with another person when two suspects, including Amanda Brooks, kicked in the door.
The suspects reportedly smashed items in the home and accused the residents of stealing from their mobile home, which is located next door. During the home invasion, Brooks was armed with a wooden stick and the male suspect was armed with a crowbar. A third person was waiting in a vehicle.
One victim sustained a broken arm and other injuries and was transported to the hospital by a friend. The other victim was beaten with the crowbar and was taken to a local emergency room where he was treated and released.
The three suspects fled the scene. 30-year-old James Adam Jones and 26-year-old Kalob Ryan Pegram, both from Lincolnton, were both arrested on August 2. Jones was taken into custody in the early morning hours and Pegram was arrested at about 6:30 p.m.
Following her arrest yesterday, Brooks was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center and later released under a $30,000 secured bond. A first appearance in District Court was scheduled today. Jones and Pegram will next appear in court on August 24.
