FDL County DA Commends Witnesses In Home Invasion Trial

Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney commends witnesses who helped convict a 25-year-old Milwaukee man of a home invasion in Fond du Lac. A jury found Xavier Young guilty last week of being party to the crimes of armed robbery and burglary. Toney says the witnesses testified against him despite being threatened with a gun at the scene and later Young posted more threats on Facebook. In them he had a picture of himself with a gun in his hand and had a picture of the victim’s family and her children next to it. He says police are still looking for the other two men involved in the robbery in June of 2014. He says it happened over Walleye Weekend in the Follett Street area. He urges anyone with information to call the Fond du Lac Police Department. A pre-sentence investigation has been ordered.
