    The truth about the whole incident comes out after last suspect surrenders. I though they had been caught already.

    Final robbery suspect arrested
    Formal charges for him and another suspect are pending.

    The last of the suspected robbers in a Rivergreenway holdup that left an accomplice dead early Saturday has been arrested.

    James Jacquelle Davis, 19, turned himself in around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Allen County Jail, where police spokeswoman Raquel Foster said he asked to speak with a detective concerning the alleged armed robbery of an 18-year-old apartment resident at 1001 Edgewater Ave. The incident took place around 4:30 a.m. and resulted in a struggle in which one suspect, 18-year-old Tyrell L. Williams, was stabbed by the resident.

    Davis and the other suspect in the case, 40-year-old Melvin Murdock, fled while Williams bled to death.

    Murdock, of the 1400 block of Summit Street, was found by Fort Wayne Police around 5 p.m. Tuesday and booked into Allen County Lockup on a preliminary Class B felony charge of armed robbery. Davis, of the 5300 block of McClellan Street, was booked a day later on the same initial charge.

    Formal charges through the Allen County Prosecutor's Office are pending.

    Both Davis and Murdock are being held in lieu of $10,000 bonds. Each has initial hearings scheduled in Allen Superior Court early next week.

    Murdock told police during an interview that he, Davis and Williams were drinking vodka in the hours leading up to the incident, and the group left for a party on Lake Avenue, according to Murdock's probable-cause affidavit. When the men couldn't find the party, Murdock said they walked on the Rivergreenway.

    As the group walked, Williams fired his gun into the air (Murdock said both Davis and Williams were armed), but after spotting a police squad car on Edgewater, Murdock said both Davis and Williams tossed their guns down a steep embankment, the affidavit said.

    As the pair began searching for the discarded guns, the apartment resident came out and offered a flashlight to the men, helping Williams to find his gun, the affidavit said.

    The three suspects and the apartment resident then went to the resident's apartment to smoke marijuana, the affidavit said.

    Once inside, Williams pulled out the gun and demanded money of the resident, the affidavit said. Murdock told police Davis took the money, and Williams pointed the gun at the apartment resident and pulled the trigger, the affidavit said.

    A fight then erupted, and Williams was stabbed with a steak knife by the resident during a struggle in which punches and tables were thrown, according to the affidavit. Murdock said Davis took a laptop, a cell phone and Williams' gun before he and Davis ran off.

    Police found Davis' gun beside the Rivergreenway, where Murdock told them to look for it, the affidavit said.
