Police say a GPS tracking bracelet confirms a Duluth man was at the scene of a home invasion robbery in the Lincoln Park neighborhood this month.

The incident happened at a home in the 2600 block of West 4th Street in the early morning hours of May 18.  A woman reported she awoke to hear someone inside her home, and then a man wearing a mask entered her bedroom and demanded money or jewelry.  The man allegedly hit the woman with a glass vase and stole her cell phone, purses, and a box of jewelry.

The woman was treated at a hospital for injuries that are not life-threatening.

Police later executed a search warrant at a home where a person using a credit card stolen in the burglary was believed to live.  Items taken during the robbery were allegedly found in the residence.

27-year-old Tommy Ray Morgan, Senior, was allegedly staying at the residence where the items were found.  Morgan was required to wear a GPS tracking bracelet as part of his supervised released after being charged with robbing a Subway restaurant last month.

The company that monitors Morgan's GPS bracelet said it confirmed Morgan was at the victim's residence at the time of the burglary.  Police say Morgan had cut off the bracelet the day after the burglary.

Morgan is charged with first-degree burglary, first-degree assault, and first-degree robbery.

Tommy Ray Morgan, Sr.
