Two Gainesville men have been arrested on multiple charges related to an August home invasion robbery.

Malcolm Xavier Cromarty, 20, of 4146 SW 17th Place, and Donte Mandel Bradley-Faulk, 21, of 4146 SW 17th Place, were charged with home invasion robbery with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and grand theft, according to an Alachua County Sheriff's Office report.

The crimes occurred on Aug. 23 at the Reflections apartment complex at 205 SW 75th St. Several men rushed into the apartment and took various items from the people inside, including money, wallets and cellphones.

Investigators said they learned the identities of two of the culprits, Larry Robinson, 18, and Ahmad Hunt, 22, who were arrested shortly afterward.

The continuing investigation led to the arrest Thursday of Cromarty and Bradley-Faulk.
