JONESBORO, Ga. -- Clayton County Police arrested at least two suspects overnight in Monday's violent armed robbery and kidnapping of a 69-year-old man.
"And I've just been told that one of the suspects has confessed to the crime," said Major Johnny Robinson during an early morning interview.
David Starkes, 29, was arrested first. Clayton County Police Officer Danielle Rosa said Starkes is the one who confessed and turned in his accomplice, 24-year-old Frederick Anderson.
Both men are charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, kidnapping and hijacking of a motor vehicle.
Police said the victim is still in the hospital recovering from bruises and what appears to be a broken eye socket.
