Investigators have arrested two people following a home invasion and sexual assault in Tuscaloosa last week.

Police have arrested 19-year-old Andrew Bryant and charged him with burglary and rape. He is being held in the Tuscaloosa county jail on $120,000 bond. They have also charged 19-year-old James Tristen Bostic with burglary. He is currently in the Tuscaloosa county jail on this and other unrelated charges.

Investigators are still looking for 19-year-old Christopher Terze Childs. He has outstanding warrants for burglary and rape. If you know where he is, call the homicide unit at 464-8690 or Crimestoppers.

On January 1, Northport police were called to the 2800 block of Hunter Creek Road on a home invasion type burglary. The people who lived there told police three suspects forced their way into the house and demanded money. Two of the people who lived there were assaulted by being pistol whipped. One of the female occupants told officers she was sexually assaulted by one of the suspects.
