More charges in Sterling robbery: Police
A Loudoun man has been arrested on charges stemming from a botched robbery in Sterling on Feb. 10, according to the Loudoun Sheriff's Office.
Samuel Thomas Eaton, 27, was the last suspect believed to be connected to the apparent home invasion robbery that left one man dead and another wounded, authorities said.
Eaton was spotted Tuesday morning riding a bicycle on Sterling Boulevard by a citizen who recognized him and called the Sheriff's Office, according to authorities. Deputies took Eaton into custody without incident.
On Feb. 10, three men burst into a two-story, single-family house in the 1200 block of East Kennedy Road around 8:30 p.m., assaulting a man who lived there, authorities said. Two of the alleged invaders were shot by the man they assaulted, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Anthony D. Miles, 28, of Manassas was fatally wounded, while his 32-year-old alleged accomplice survived. Eaton fled the scene with the injured man, who was later dropped off at a hospital, authorities said.
Two women, Rebecca Lynn Hook, 27, of Lovettsville and Whitney Lasik, 24 of Sterling, were also charged in connection to the crime as accessories after the fact. Both women were arrested and have been released on bond pending their trials, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Authorities declined to identify the wounded man pending charges that will likely be sought when his recovery is further along, according to the Sheriff's Office.
