Teen couple arrested in home invasion

A teen couple was arrested Thursday in connection with an armed robbery and home invasion in Hall County.

Keyshon Jenard Pulliam, 19, and Mattaline Virginia Patterson, 18, allegedly forced their way into a Newton Street home with a handgun and robbed a man of his money, cellphone, wallet and keys, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Scott Ware said.

Investigators issued arrest warrants for the Gainesville teens the day after the May 30 crime, but they were not caught until Thursday morning. 

Both were charged with armed robbery, Ware said. Pulliam faces an additional charge of home invasion.

He and Patterson are in the Hall County Jail. Bond has not been set for the teens.

The case remains under investigation.
