According to a Bradenton Police Department report officers were dispatched to the scene to investigate a 9-1-1 call. When they arrived they found Johnny B. Edwards, 19, Julius T. Lang Jr., 19, and a juvenile standing in the front yard of the residence where the call came from.

Two of the suspects were armed with handguns. All three were taken into custody without incident the report states. Investigators say the suspects forced their way into the home and demanded money from the residents.

When the victims explained they did not have any money the suspects fled but not before one of the victims called for help. The residents were not injured during the commission of the crime.

Edwards is facing one count of home invasion robbery and one count of burglary.

Lang Jr. is charged with one count of home invasion robbery.

The juvenile, whose name is not being released because of his age, was charged with one count of home invasion robbery, one count of burglary and one count of marijuana possession.
