Duncan man arrested for first degree burglary

DUNCAN — Duncan police arrested a Duncan man on a felony count of burglary in the first degree.

Malik Hakem Wilson, 20, was arrested Sunday night after police responded to a call about people shooting a gun in a parking lot. Duncan Police Officer David Martin filed an affidavit following Wilson’s arrest.

Police made contact with Wilson, who “advised me that the silver car in the parking lot had guns and people inside of it,” Wilson said in the affidavit. “I then approached a silver Mercury four-door car. As I approached the vehicle, I noticed that there were no occupants in the vehicle. I then looked through the window and noticed a pistol and a shotgun in the floorboard of the car.”

According to the affidavit, Wilson told police he didn’t know who owned the car nor the guns. Martin said he made contact with a man who “explained to me that Malik had entered his aunt’s apartment without permission and stole a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle that belonged to his brother.”

Someone also located a green rifle case with a rifle, both of which were identified by the victim, according to the affidavit.

A charge of burglary in the first is punishable by seven to 20 years in prison. A bond of $75,000 was set. Wilson’s preliminary hearing conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. July 30 in Stephens County District Court.
