PHOENIX (AP) – Authorities have released the names of three suspects accused of robbing a Phoenix woman who also was allegedly sexually assaulted.
Phoenix police say 23-year-old Raul Torres Casas, 26-year-old Desirae Alyse Miranda and 26-year-old Albert Pete Chavez Amaya were arrested Sunday.
Police say the 26-year-old victim reported that she had been spending time with the three suspects Saturday night when they tied her up and robbed her.
The suspects allegedly forced the victim to withdraw money from a check cashing business. They then took the victim to a west Phoenix home, where she says she was bound and sexually assaulted.
The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle and then led officers on a foot chase. Police say one of the suspects accidentally shot himself during the incident.
Officers later found the victim tied up in a car after the suspects fled.
It was unclear Monday if either Casas, Miranda or Amaya have a lawyer.
