2 charged in home invasion

JOHNSTOWN — Johnstown police took two women into custody and charged them with involvement in Saturday’s home invasion robbery in the West End.

Stephanie Ann Huff, 23, and Meagan Rose McKenzie, 19, were being processed by police late Tuesday afternoon. They were to be taken to central booking at the Cambria County Prison for their arraignments.

In a criminal complaint, police said the two women and a man kicked in the door of a second-floor apartment in the 200 block of Laurel Avenue that had several people inside.

The robbers were dressed in black with black bandanas covering their faces.

The man pointed a handgun, and the three made off with $4,000 in cash the occupants were saving to purchase a car, police said.

They also took four cellphones.

People in the apartment identified the female robbers by their physical features and voices, police said.

McKenzie has addresses at Oakhurst Homes and Woodvale Avenue. Huff has addresses on McMillen Street and Oak Street.

The two women were charged before District Judge Michael Musulin of Johnstown with robbery, burglary, theft and receiving stolen property.

Police are still looking for the male suspect.
