Troy Lewis, 21, is currently in prison for a January 2010 home invasion and is serving between five and 15 years on those charges. However, he’s facing more charges for incidents in January, March, June and July of this year, according to court records.
Lewis is facing three charges of first-degree home invasion, a charge each of assault with intent to rob, assault with a dangerous weapon and a felony firearms charge for a Jan. 14 incident, according to court records.
Court records state charges related to a March 9 incident includes two counts each of armed robbery and first-degree home invasion, one count each of carrying a firearm with unlawful intent and possession of a firearm, intentionally firing a firearm at a home or occupied building, assault with a dangerous weapon and a felony firearms charge.
In the March 9 incident, Lewis and an accomplice are believed to have knocked on the front door of a residence at about 12:50 a.m. in the 100 block of Riley Court. Lewis and his accomplice asked for a man who didn’t live there and then asked for a man the victim knew, before kicking down the door and pointing silver handguns at the victim, according to police. The victim was also struck in the head with the butt of a gun.
The gun fired one shot but did not hit anyone, police said. Lewis and his accomplice took an unknown amount of money and left the scene, according to police.
Lewis is accused of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest stemming from a June 14 incident, according to court records.
Lewis is charged with two counts of assaulting a police and resisting arrest on July 29, when he was arrested in the Sycamore Meadows apartment complex at about noon.
He is due back in court for a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 17 in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz’s courtroom, according to court records.
