A third suspect wanted in the July beating of a 36-year-old Brainerd man turned himself in to police Monday morning.
Tyrone Sonny Robinson, 33, who was wanted on an arrest warrant in connection with the July 15 assault of Cameron Quickbear in northeast Brainerd, turned himself in about 9 a.m. at the Brainerd Police Department, Brainerd Police Deputy Chief Corky McQuiston said.
McQuiston said it wasn't known if Tyrone Robinson had stayed in Brainerd or left the city following the assault on Quickbear.
"He called and said he was turning himself in. When we questioned him, he didn't want to talk until a lawyer was appointed," McQuiston said.
Tyrone Robinson is being held in the Crow Wing County Jail for assault. Formal criminal charges are expected Tuesday.
Tyrone Robinson is suspected of being among a group of people who used objects described by witnesses as pipes, sticks or baseball bats to assault Quickbear following the July 15 confrontation at a house on the 1000 block of Seventh Avenue Northeast in Brainerd.
Two others at the residence who are accused of attacking Quickbear, Ronald Deshun Robinson, 30, and Andrhea Lynn Fitch, 26, have been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and third-degree assault.
An arrest warrant has been issued for a fourth suspect, Cord Thomas Robinson, 31. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Cord Robinson is asked to call the Brainerd Police Department at 829-2805.
Quickbear was charged last week with felony second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and terroristic threats for his role in instigating the assault.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Quickbear, he had been consuming alcohol the day of the assault and had a verbal confrontation with the residents and others at the house on the 1000 block of Seventh Avenue Northeast. He is accused of yelling racial epithets and lunging at one of the individuals with a knife in each hand. The group subsequently beat Quickbear senseless and left him lying in the street in a pool of blood. Quickbear was hospitalized for several days at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.
