The Duluth Police Department announced Monday that 18-year-old Christian Hamzah Coleman turned himself in at the Public Safety Building last Friday.  Multiple warrants had been issued for Coleman over his alleged involvement in the March 13 Lincoln Park neighborhood incident.

The home invasion happened on the 600 block of Atlantic Avenue a day after Coleman was released from the St. Louis County Jail. He had been held for obstructing the legal process and giving a false name or date of birth to an officer. 

According to the criminal complaint, a resident of the home identified Coleman as one of three men who broke into the house in the early morning hours and demanded money and drugs.

The complaint alleges that the men held the family of five at gunpoint for about an hour while they searched the home for drugs and money, which they did not find.  They eventually left the home with phones, a wallet, and a TV.

A Duluth Police Department spokesperson said Monday that it has no other suspects in custody and the investigation is still active. Descriptions of the other two men have not been released.

Coleman faces nine felony charges, including three counts of aiding and abetting burglary, aiding and abetting criminal sexual conduct, aiding and abetting kidnapping and four counts of aiding and abetting false imprisonment.
