PROVIDENCE
, R.I.
- Criminal complaints unsealed in federal court Friday allege two men who conspired and engaged in an armed Hobbs Act robbery home invasion.

Kiplagatt Stewart, 43, and Allen D. Prout, 42 are the two men being accused of the crime that took place in West Warwick in September of 2012. The home invasion resulted in approximately $14,000 being stolen and one of the alleged intruders being shot.

Stewart was arrested today at his home in Providence by officers and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), as well as members of the ATF Special Response Team, Rhode Island State Police, and West Warwick and Providence Police Departments.

Prout has been held in federal custody since June 6, 2014. He was arrested by ATF agents along with Providence Police Department SWAT team after being charged with allegedly participating in a Hobbs Act conspiracy to commit an armed home invasion in Providence.

The criminal complaint unsealed today charges Prout and Stewart with one count each of Hobbs Act conspiracy, Hobbs Act robbery, and use of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

If convicted, the defendants face up to life in prison.
