A Sikeston man has been charged in connection with an early morning robbery and home invasion, that happened east of Miner on Friday morning, which ended in a standoff in Sikeston.. 

Andrew T. Robinett, 28, of Sikeston, has been charged with armed criminal action, burglary, robbery, unlawful use of a weapon, and endangerment of a child. 

Officials say at approximately 4:20 a.m. Friday morning, a deputy was dispatched to a home east of Sikeston regarding a home invasion and armed robbery.

Multiple victims inside the home said they were woken up by two white male subjects, both wearing ski masks and one holding a handgun.

Occupants of the home were corralled in to the living room, where the suspects forcible took their money and cell phones.

It was reported that approximately $4,425 and five cell phones were taken. 

During the robbery, one of five victims was able to escape and provided officers with a suspect vehicle description.

The victim identified the suspect vehicle as a white SUV. 

One of the victims also recognized the voice of Robinett as one of the robbery suspects.

Deputies say none of the victims were injured.
