Columbus man expected to plead guilty in 2009 home invasion, rape case

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) – A suspect in a brutal home invasion and rape in north Columbus is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Andre Grier, 24, has remained in jail since being arrested for the brutal home invasion in 2009.

He is expected to plead guilty after being charged with several charges, including false imprisonment, armed robbery and rape.

Columbus police say Grier is one of several masked gunmen who robbed a group of people at gunpoint inside one of the apartments at the Spring Cove Apartment Complex off Warms Springs Road. During the attack, police say Grier also sexually assaulted a female victim while her 10 month old baby was nearby.

According to detectives, DNA evidence led them to Grier.  Officials say he has a criminal background.
