Largo Man, 20, charged in home invasion

A Largo man was arrested Tuesday, accused of breaking into an apartment and pistol-whipping a man, Largo police said. Dwight E. Green, 20, was charged with home invasion robbery in the April 29 attack. According to police, Green was armed with a handgun when he and several other people "forced their way into an apartment, where a fight ensued," the report said. Green pistol-whipped a victim, who is not named, before he and the other suspects fled in a red Chrysler Sebring, the report said. One witness was able to identify Green and another said Green admitted his involvement. He is also wanted in Georgia on 2008 charges of burglary and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony. The report does not say what was stolen during the Largo robbery. Green was being held without bail Wednesday at the Pinellas County Jail.
