Four men are facing home invasion charges after a break-in at a Brighton home in which an intruder held a knife to a teenager and demanded money and marijuana, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office said.
Peter Matthews, 18, of Brighton, and Anthony Gilbert, 19, of Allston, are expected to be arraigned Monday. Ricardo Delice, 18, of Brockton, and Leon McKoy, 19, of Dorchester, were ordered held on $100,000 bail at their arraignments in Brighton District Court on Friday, prosecutors said.
The four men, accused of breaking into a home on Nottinghill Road at about 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 24 were arrested Friday, authorities said.
During the break-in, a teenager woke up and saw the intruders. One of them held a knife to him and demanded money and marijuana, prosecutors said. The teenager said he had neither, and when the men asked who else was home, the teenager said his parents were there. The men decided to leave, authorities said. The teen woke his parents who called Boston Police.
