Two suspects arrested for a robbery in Tuttle are facing bonds more than $1 million each. 

Both Jessica Roberts and Nathaniel Jones face charges of first degree robbery and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Roberts' bond was set at $1.5 million and Jones' was set at $2.5 million. Both are being held in the Grady County Jail. 

The pair were arrested at a residence in Oklahoma City on Sept. 4. A search warrant was served at about 11 p.m. Roberts surrendered immediately. According to court documents, Jones was injured during the robbery and was hiding in the attic. 

Jones was taken into custody at 2:15 a.m. after Oklahoma City Police fired tear gas into the home. Jones was treated and released at a nearby hospital, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. 

On Aug. 31, Jones and Roberts went to the home of an elderly couple in Tuttle at 9 p.m. They went under the premise of trading a gun that the man had listed on armslist.com. They took zip ties and duct tape with them. 

Jones and Roberts entered the home and discussed the guns before they attacked the couple, who are both in their 70s. 

Roberts zip tied the wife's hands and feet while Jones did the same thing to the husband. The husband fought Jones. Jones hit the man over the head with the gun and punched him multiple times. Jones left the room. 

Due to the zip tie being only partially on the husband's hands, he was able to free himself. He then grabbed a loaded gun. When Jones came back into the room, the man began firing the gun.

Jones and Roberts ran out of the house and left in a car waiting outside. Authorities are still seeking the driver of the car, who may have been driving a Mazda 3. While this person did not enter the home where the robbery took place, they are still wanted in connection with the incident. 

Those with information about the identity of the suspect or where the vehicle may be located are asked to call the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation at 800-522-8017 or email tips@osbi.ok.gov
