The arrest comes nearly two weeks after suspects broke into a 75-year-old’s home on Sept. 12. Police say the victim was assaulted and died of his injuries.

Investigators are still asking for the public’s help in identifying other potential suspects in connection with the city’s 20th homicide of the year.
