Home invasion robbers woke two north Spokane apartment residents Wednesday morning by beating them with 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 Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, but Spokane police dog Maximus captured him.
The three are accused of entering an apartment on West Bellwood Drive, where a 22-year-old man and a 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. Pendell, Wilson and Holley are in jail on charges of first-degree armed robbery, second-degree assault and first-degree theft.
