UPDATE: Third Suspect in Jewett Home Invasion Captured in Detroit
A third suspect in the beating of a 71-year-old man during a home invasion in Jewett was arrested on Friday by U.S. Marshals in downtown Detroit.
Bryan Nicosia, who was wanted for kidnapping and aggravated assault, had been on the run since the incident in July. Deputy U.S. Marshal Chad Simpson conducted numerous interviews and received various tips that led investigators to believe that Nicosia was in Detroit. Simpson contacted Marshals in Detroit where they were able to piece the information together, paired with surveillance to locate and arrest Nicosia.
A few days after the robbery, two women, Kara Clark and Autumn Stabile, were arrested as suspects. Authorities say Stabile called in to sheriff's office and wanted to turn herself in, but said she didn't have a ride from Steubenville. Steubenville Police picked her up and transported her to Harrison County, where Stabile gave police the name of the second female, Clark. Wells Township Police picked up Clark in Brilliant and transported her to Harrison County. Both of the women reportedly confessed, but have conflicting stories about who took the money.
The Jewett Police Department responded to the call in mid-July after the victim managed to free himself from the duct tape he had been bound with and crawled to a neighbor's house. He was immediately taken to the hospital with severe injuries including fractures to the face area, a broken nose and possible internal injuries.
After an investigation, it was discovered that a female that the elderly man had associated with, Stabile, had come to his home with another female, Clark, and a Nicosia, who allegedly assaulted, duct-taped, and tied him up with a cord from an electric fan and left him in the bathroom as they robbed him.
The thieves got away with $4,000 in gold coins and cash.
Stabile is charged with aggravated burglary and kidnapping and was given a bond of $1 million. Clark is charged with obstructing justice and was given a bond of $100,000. They are being held at the Jefferson County Justice Center.
Nicosia will be housed at the Wayne County Jail in Detroit, awaiting extradition back to Harrison County.
