Iowa City police have located the fifth suspect in a robbery that occurred earlier this month.

Christopher Kelly, 31, Iowa City, was arrested in Smyrna, Ga., on Tuesday on warrants for first-degree robbery-joint criminal conduct and first-degree burglary-joint criminal conduct.

Kelly is currently being held in Georgia pending extradition to Iowa.

Kelly is the fifth suspect to be arrested in a robbery on North Johnson Street on July 15.

Four other subjects have been charged with first-degree robbery-joint criminal conduct, a Class-B felony, and first-degree burglary-joint criminal conduct, also a Class-B felony: Alajuwon Johnson, 29; Evelyn Chinchilla, 23; Humberto Iniguez, 28; and Lucas House, 30. All subjects are being held at the Johnson County Jail.

According to an Iowa City press release, officers responded to a report of a robbery at a North Johnson Street residence on July 15. An adult male reported that a female had knocked on the door of his residence, then two males allegedly pushed through the door open after the victim initially opened the door.

The men pushed the resident to the ground and allegedly struck him twice in the head with a handgun, the release said.

Items valued at more than $2,000 were reportedly stolen.

Iowa City and University Heights officers located two suspects in a vehicle who, they determined, had an involvement in the robbery.

Iowa City and Coralville police officers identified three other suspects during the investigation, and two were located on First Avenue in Coralville. They were then taken into custody without incident, the release said.
