Two suspects held
for home invasion
JEWETT - Two women were arrested on Wednesday in connection with a violent home invasion that took place at 101 Wheeling and Lake Erie St. on Tuesday.
At approximately 4:30 p.m., three individuals invaded the home of a 71-year-old man. According to Jewett Police Officer Todd Walker, who responded to the scene, Bryan K. Nicosia of Steubenville allegedly beat the man and tied him with duct tape and a fan cord to a chair before locking him in the bathroom. The three suspects then made off with $4,000 in cash and gold coins from the elderly man's safe.
The man was taken to the hospital and released the same day. He suffered torso lacerations, multiple facial fractures, a broken nose and possible internal injuries. He will require further treatment from a specialist, according to officials.
The two women who ransacked the man's home have been apprehended. Autumn R. Stabile, 19, reportedly called authorities from Steubenville needing a ride to turn herself in. She was taken to Harrison County authorities and gave the name of Kara Clark, the second female suspect. Clark was arrested on Wednesday night in Brilliant by Wells Township Police Officer Brian Watson.
According to Walker, Stabile knew the victim and had been to his home before.
Both women are being held in the Jefferson County jail.
Nicosia, 31, is still on the run. A warrant is out for his arrest, and he is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact Jewett Police at (740) 946-1471.
