Tampa, Fla. -
A third suspect has been arrested in the beating and robbery of 24 year old Army Sgt Johnny Aparicio who was stationed at MacDill AFB. The incident was caught on a surveillance camera nearby.
Jared Richardson, 18, has been arrested and is charged with Aggravated Battery and Robbery. Geroshe Lewis, a high school student at Robinson High School and Lerome Howard were previously arrested for their alleged involvement, both also 18 years old.
Aparicio's car had broken down when he was attacked last week. As news of the incident spread, a $16,000 reward was offered. Police say that one of the suspects has been cooperative but that none have shown any remorse.
