Another arrested in robbery w/ crowbar

Another suspect has been arrested in a violent home-invasion robbery two weeks ago.

Robert Andrew Wilson, 24, is in jail on $175,000 bail.

Spokane County Sheriff’s detectives believe he used a crowbar to assault a man and woman in an apartment at 815 W. Bellwood early March 31 before he and a group stole electronics and other valuables. The victims were bound with zip ties, but one broke free and called 911. The woman suffered a fractured shoulder from the crowbar beating, according to court documents.

Deputies arrested three suspects, 20-year-old Donald M. Holley, 30-year-old Oshien R. Pendell and 19-year-old Megan N. Wilson, the day of the robbery. Robert Wilson was booked into jail on Wednesday. 

Megan Wilson and Robert Wilson are cousins, according to court documents. Another suspect, 18-year-old Marissa R. "Sissy" Wilson, is 8 months pregnant with Robert Wilson's child. Marissa Wilson also is the ex-girlfriend of 25-year-old David M. Anderson, who lives at the targeted apartment but wasn't home during the invasion.

Court documents identify a sixth suspect as Mikhail A. Vincent, 21. Detectives searched a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo in connection with the case this week.

Wilson appeared in Superior Court Thursday on robbery, burglary, assault and unlawful imprisonment charges.
