Burglary Arrest

The Birmingham Police Department reports that a suspect is in custody in connection with two robbery investigations. The suspect was arrested on Thursday, March 3, 2011.

West Precinct officers responded to investigate a report of a robbery on Center Place Southwest on February 21, 2011. An armed suspect entered the victim’s residence demanding valuables just before striking the victim in the head with a handgun. The suspect fired the weapon into the ceiling before leaving. The victim suffered a minor injury that did not require medical attention.

Approximately 20 minutes later, West Precinct officers responded to investigate a report of another robbery at a home in the 200 block of McKinley Avenue. Officers received information that an armed suspect attempted to force entry into a victim’s residence. The suspect presented the weapon to the victim, but the victim was able to close the door without any further incident.

The suspect has been identified as: Onassis Scarbrough, B/M, 35, of Birmingham, Alabama. Two Burglary 1st degree warrants totaling $120,000.00 bond have been obtained against the suspect. The suspect is in the custody of the Jefferson County Jail.

A photo of the suspect may be obtained at the B.P.D. Headquarters, located at 1710 1st Avenue North.
