CRAWFORD COUNTY, AR -- Two teens and a homeless man have been arrested after an elderly couple was robbed at gunpoint in their Chester home.

Sam Wesley Gypson, 21 who deputies say is homeless but from the area, faces charges of Aggravated Assault 2 counts, Aggravated Residential Burglary, Aggravated Robbery, Breaking or Entering, Theft of Property.

Katelyn Leigh Bradway, 18, from Alma, was arrested for Hindering Apprehension.

The arrests come after, according to reports, two men pulled a gun on the couple after breaking into their home in Chester Tuesday evening.

Homeowner, Glenn Kimes says the masked intruders took off with only about forty bucks in cash. During the robbery, one of the men asked him for a dip of chewing tobacco, Kimes says.

"Well, I gave him a dip of Skoal. I had a can there I didn't like and so I just told him I said you can have that. And then he went off and left it laying in the floor. I don't know whether he ever took the dip or not. I think he did."

Kimes says before the intruders left, they smashed all the phones in the house. Sheriff Ron Brown says the couple drove to a neighbors house and called 911 once the robbers left.

The three suspects are currently in jail on no bond until they go for a bond hearing Monday morning.
