Police on Monday arrested the last suspect wanted for a home invasion that happened last month in North Myrtle Beach, according to jail records.

Timmane Ro Shawn Bellamy, 20, of Little River was jailed at 9:26 a.m. Monday on charges of first-degree assault and battery, two counts of kidnapping, first-degree burglary, petty larceny under $2,000 and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to jail records. Bond has not been set for Bellamy.

Bellamy along with four other people is charged in connection with a Sept. 19 incident at a home on 38th Avenue South, North Myrtle Beach police said.

On Thursday, Jeffery Andre Savage, 20, of Atlantic Beach was arrested on the same charges Bellamy faces, according to authorities. He is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center on $303,000 bond.

A North Myrtle Beach couple told police they were robbed at gunpoint inside their home on 38th Avenue South as their 2-year-old daughter slept, police said.

Jamie Jessica Chapman, 21, of Columbus, Ohio and Robin Renee Alston, 28, of Atlantic Beach also are charged in the incident with first degree burglary and petty larceny, according to police. Chapman is being held on $101,000 bail at the jail, while Alston was released on the same bail on Sept. 25.

Chapman is accused of knocking on the couple’s door just before 2 a.m. Sept. 19 and asking to use a telephone, allowing three men to force themselves into the home, the report said.

Police said Alston drove the group to and from the home.

Yawnnie Leshawn Waters, 20, of Atlantic Beach, also is charged with armed robbery, first degree assault and battery, two counts of kidnapping, first degree burglary, second degree burglary, petty larceny and possession of firearms and ammunition. He is being held on $336,000 bail.

One of the armed men pushed the woman in the house against a wall while she pleaded for them to stop, afraid that something would happen to her sleeping daughter.

Two other armed suspects forced the man onto the ground and hit him in the back of the head with a handgun. He was later forced into the bedroom and asked if there was any money in the home. He gave them his wallet, which had $145 cash inside. A Playstation 3 was also taken.

The woman reportedly tried to take the gun from the man holding her against the wall and was able to hit the suspect and yell for help when the group fled from the home.

Police followed a car from the neighborhood to a parking lot at 3304 South Ocean Boulevard. Three men fled from the car, but Chapman and Robin Renee Alston, who was driving, stayed.

The toddler was not awakened during the holdup. Neither of the victims was seriously injured.
