Three people have been arrested after a man was left robbed and stranded at a local boat ramp, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office reports.
Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, authorities responded to a call from the man at 1900 Lee Pike. The victim reported that he had been with several friends at a local bar. When they left the bar the driver pulled into a boat ramp parking area and produced a handgun while demanding the victim's personal belongings, including cash and medication.
The suspects then left the victim stranded at the boat ramp, authorities say.
Deputies found all three suspects at a convenience store in the 13400 block of Dayton Pike. Joshua Stevenson and Catherine Beason were arrested at the scene while a third, John Dykes, fled on foot, according to a news release.
Dykes was arrested later Sunday afternoon not far from the location where he had originally fled. All three subjects were charged with aggravated robbery, carrying a dangerous weapon with the intent to go armed and possession of a controlled substance. Dykes had additional charges for evading arrest.
