2 beaten with crowbar in home invasion

Home-invasion robbers awakened two north Spokane apartment residents this morning by beating them a crowbar before stealing electronics.

The suspects, 20-year-old Donald M. Holley, 30-year-old Oshien R. Pendell and 19-year-old Megan N. Wilson, were arrested after deputies spotted them in a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo at the crime scene.

Pendell ran away as Holley and Wilson were arrested, according to the Sopkane County Sheriff's Office, but Spokane police dog Maximus captured him.

The three are accused of entering an apartment on West Bellwood Drive early this morning, where a 22-year-old and 19-year-old woman were beaten with a metal crowbar before their hands were tied with zip ties, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The man broke free and called 911.

Deputies found a TV, headphone and stereo components stolen from the apartment inside the Isuzu. 

Pendell, Wilson and Holley faces charges of first-degree armed robbery, second-degree assault and first-degree theft. Detectives are looking for additional suspects.
