NEWORLEANS - The Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office has refused the charges against a teenager booked in connection with a high-profile home invasion in the Lakeview neighborhood.

Last month, police arrested 18-year-old Albert Jones, Jr. and charged him with armed robbery and simple kidnapping in a September 18 home-invastion on Vicksburg Street.

Police said the victim in that case was taken from her apartment and forced at gun point to withdraw money from a nearby ATM.

Sources tell Eyewitness News that after his arrest the victim could not positively identify Jones as the kidnapper.

Jones remains in Orleans Parish Prison on unrelated charges.
