(Stillwater, Okla.) — A 25-year-old Stillwater man accused of a home invasion and armed robbery has been jailed on $50,000 bail pending a July 29 court appearance on charges punishable by as much as a life prison term plus 20 years on conviction.
Glen Lee Caswell was identified by two women as the masked man who broke in and robbed them by using a pistol with black grips and a silver frame, Stillwater Police Officer Greg Calloway alleged in an affidavit.
When the officer asked one woman “to explain to me how she knew that this person was actually Glen Caswell,” she said she was in drug court with his girlfriend, the affidavit alleged. “She told me that she was friends on Facebook,” with Caswell and his girlfriend, the affidavit alleged.
“She knows Glen has several tattoos including several arm and hand tattoos that she positively identified during the incident,” the affidavit alleged.
The other woman said, “Glen Caswell came into her bedroom and demanded she give him all of her valuables, cash, credit cards and her cell phone,” the affidavit alleged.
She said “she saw Glen walking off from her apartment with a short heavyset female with braids in her hair wearing a black backpack,” the affidavit alleged.
She said she knew Caswell from a woman who had taken her car without permission in a different incident, the affidavit alleged.
The home invasion in the 300 block of E. McElroy occurred at 4:25 am on March 10, the affidavit alleged.
“Dispatch said over the radio that the victim had been robbed at her apartment and her phone had been taken,” so she walked to a convenience store to wait for police, the affidavit alleged.
One woman said she was sleeping on a couch at the other woman’s apartment when she heard someone banging on the door and went to look through the peephole, but it appeared covered up, the affidavit alleged.
As the other woman’s boyfriend “was making his way to the front door, the front door burst open and a subject by the name of Glen Caswell entered wearing a mask over his face,” the affidavit alleged.
She said, “Glen had a pistol in his hand and subsequently hit (the boyfriend) with it knocking him to the ground,” before demanding money, the affidavit alleged. She said Caswell put money in a black backpack, the affidavit alleged.
She said, “Glen came back into the living room and demanded that she give him whatever money and valuables were in purse,” which was about $5 in change, the affidavit alleged.
She said “she was extremely scared during this encounter because Glen kept telling everyone he was going to shoot everyone if in fact they did not cooperate,” the affidavit alleged.
She said “after Glen took everything that he could take, he exited the apartment,” the affidavit alleged.
