One person in custody, two others sought in burglary, assault case
One person is in custody and authorities are searching for two other suspects in connection to a burglary and assault case that occurred on Saturday in Perry Township. According to an article by New Castle News, 38-year-old Brandy Mae Rumbold of Elwood City was arrested in Cadiz, Ohio, where police managed to track the trio on Sunday.
Police are still looking for Tyler Michael Cory Amos, 25, of Cochranton. Officers did not identify the third suspect.
“According criminal complaints filed in the office of District Judge Jerry Cartwright Jr., Rumbold and Amos face 36 charges including attempted criminal homicide, three counts of aggravated assault, four counts of kidnapping, burglary, eight counts of robbery, two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery, two counts of theft, recklessly burning or exploding property valued at more than $5,000, two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of terroristic threats, two counts of unlawful restraint resulting in serious bodily injury, six counts of simple assault, accommodation, person of interest, making repairs, selling offensive weapons and criminal trespass,” the article reads. “Amos is additionally charged with driving while operating privileges are suspended or revoked”
Rumbold was taken into custody, but according to police she is not being held locally at this time. Authorities continue to search a wooded area in Harrison County, Ohio for two men who they believe were with Rumbold during the crime.
Saturday, the owner of Cable Hardwoods, which is located on Portersville Road, arrived to work about 8:20 a.m. When he got there, he reportedly found the three burglars inside.
“The 60-year-old owner, checking his buildings after seeing an open door on one of his sheds, encountered three armed individuals. He told police one of the three fired a shotgun at him to prevent him from fleeing,” the article reads. “He was then forced into his office at gunpoint, and was robbed, kicked and beaten about the head, face and body with a baseball bat, gun, fist, feet and hands. According to the police report, the victim said during the struggle another round was fired at him but the weapon misfired.”
During the altercation an 84-year-old family member also arrived at the business to feed some cats. He was also reportedly robbed and then beaten by the three suspects.
“The three eventually fled in the business owner’s vehicle, an orange 2004 Toyota Scion, police said. The owner told police he was able to crawl through the woods to reach a neighboring home where he called 911,” the article reads. “According to the police report, he was flown by helicopter to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh with serious injuries. He has since been released. The 84-year-old was taken to Ellwood City Hospital.”
The suspects also reportedly set fire to the owner’s vehicle before taking off in Rumbold’s vehicle. Police say they eventually abandoned Rumbold’s vehicle and stole another one in North Sewickley Township and burglarized a home in Cranberry Township. There the trio allegedly stole yet another vehicle, as well as some guns.
“Police were able to track the threesome to Cadiz, where they took Rumbold into custody. The police report said officers also recovered stolen firearms and miscellaneous items,” the article reads.
Police have told the media that they believe the three suspects have been involved in other incidents in the area including motor vehicle thefts and burglaries.
