Authorities seek three suspects in Scott County robbery
SCOTT COUNTY, Va. —
Three people are facing charges in Scott County after they are accused of beating a man and robbing him of cash and prescription medication.
Scott County deputies got the call from the victim just before 5:30 Wednesday.
He told authorities the suspects picked him up in Kingsport and told him they were going to a friend’s house. Investigators say the victim was taken to an abandoned house in Yuma.
He then was attacked and robbed of his cash and pills.
"When he woke up, he got out of the old abandoned house when he came to and went to a neighboring house and Good Samaritan there let him call 9-1-1," Major Chris Holder said.
Authorities have obtained 19 warrants for the three suspects, including strangulation, robbery, and assault.
The victim sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He has since been released from the hospital.
