The victim told police that he invited the three suspects — later identified as David Sweat, 24, Joshua Hutto, 39, and Linda Presson — into his apartment.

The victim told police that a shotgun was pointed at him and the three suspects demanded his wallet, phone and keys. Police said the victim was threatened but the gun jammed.

“All three suspects left the apartment in an attempt to take the victim’s vehicle. The victim was able to leave the residence without further incident,” Albany police said in a release.

Police said all three suspects were charged with armed robbery. Hutto was also charged with entering auto.

All three were taken to the Dougherty County Jail.
