John Wagner, 31, was arrested Wednesday night in the area of South Avenue and Midlothian Boulevard. His father, Russell Wagner, was arrested in Beaver County on Thursday morning.

John and Russell Wagner were wanted in connection to the robbery of a 73-year-old man who was found beaten inside his home. A gun safe and the man’s pickup truck were stolen.

Police say two suspects broke into the man’s house on Midlothian Boulevard on Jan. 23 wearing ski masks and waving guns. During the robbery, the victim was tied up and beaten.

Another suspect, Alyssa Dimuzio, has already been arrested and is being held on $50,000 bond. Prosecutors say Dimuzio helped plan the robbery. She had been living the victim until he threw her out the day before the robbery.

John Wagner and Dimuzio are charged with aggravated burglary. John Wagner faces an additional charge of kidnapping.

Russell Wagner is in the Beaver County Jail, awaiting extradition to Mahoning County to face his charges.
