Arrest Made After Miami Man Twice Falls Victim to Crooks in One Week

A 25-year old man is behind bars after police say he's one of a pair of thieves may have hit the same victim twice in one week in Miami.

Jamal Reaves-Hunt was charged with two counts, including armed robbery with a deadly weapon, for his alleged involvement in the cases.

Detectives say a man was robbed at his front door by two men and two days later the victim's home was burglarized.

Police released surveillance video of the crime which was captured on security cameras installed inside the victim's home located on northeast 46th Street and 1st Avenue.

The first crime happened Nov. 8th as the victim walked up to his front door.

A man from the street hollered "Hey!" and as the victim looked back, he saw a man pointing a semi-automatic pistol at him.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, said the suspect told him to drop everything. "We can do this the easy way or the hard way," the victim explained. The suspect then demanded the victim's backpack, wallet and car keys, police said.

Reaves-Hunt and an accomplice left in the victim's 2010 dark blue Porsche Panamera. Investigators say the suspects used the victim's credit cards in various stores.

Four days later, burglars ransacked the victim's home. The victims said he thinks the same pair from the earlier robbery were responsible. "I just knew they would come back."

Surveillance video shows two men inside the home, making off with a TV. Detectives say the duo captured on tape resemble the two men behind the carjacking.

If you have any information on the second suspect in the case, you are urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers 305-471-TIPS.
