MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – The fourth and last suspect in a robbery incident that happened on October 18 is now behind bars.

According to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery, Seth Withrow, 23, of Mountain Home was developed as a suspect and a bench warrant for robbery was later issued for his arrest.

Withrow was arrested on Friday after the sheriff's office got a tip that he would be in a vehicle driving on Cranfield Road. Investigators found the vehicle, and arrested Winthrow.

He is being charged with felony aggravated robbery.

The first incident happened on Oct. 10 at a home in Mountain Home on Arkansas Highway 5. A man told investigators he was attacked and robbed by a man and two women.

The victim said he was pushed down on a couch and punched by suspects later identified as Jeremi Witt, Jessica Lee and Jackie Denny. He also told sheriff's investigators the group took $500 from his wallet. The victim reportedly owed Lee money for an iPod, according to Montgomery.

Witt, 33, and Denny, 38, both of Mountain Home were arrested on Nov. 6 at a home in Mountain Home after an anonymous tip. Lee, 26, of Viola was found to already be in the Baxter County Jail on unrelated charges.

Witt, Lee and Denny were all charged with felony aggravated robbery and robbery. Bonds for Witt and Lee were set at $200,000. Denny's bond was set at $100,000.

Witt appeared in court Thursday, while Lee and Denny have court dates set for Nov. 14.

In a separate incident, deputies responded to a body shop in Mountain Home where a man had been hit in the head on the morning of Oct. 18. A deliveryman found the man in front of the business. He was the same one assaulted on Oct. 10, according to Montgomery.

The victim told investigators he was "hit in the head with a pipe and a hammer". The man also said his cell phone, medication, bag of marijuana and $221 in cash was stolen. He was taken to a Springfield, Missouri hospital for treatment.

Withrow's bond was set at $100,000, and he will be in court on Nov. 14.
