Three armed men broke into the home, police said.

Police alleged that Raleigh, also known as FB, held a semiautomatic handgun to the temple of the victim in this case. He took $875 from the victim, and a diamond stud earring valued at $400, police said in charging documents. The victim knew Raleigh from attending classes at the health department, police said.
