Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Augusta say they have charged one man and identified a second suspect in an attack on a couple who were beaten and robbed at the city's downtown riverfront.

The Augusta Chronicle reports Richmond County sheriff's investigators said Friday that Robey Moses had been arrested in Newberry, S.C., on robbery and aggravated assault charges. Another man, 21-year-old Kevin D. Richardson, has been identified as a suspect in the attacks but has not been located.

Authorities spent the past week hunting for whoever attacked 27-year-old Wesley Spires and 25-year-old Ashley Solesbee at the downtown RIverwalk Augusta on May 3. Investigators say the couple was beaten with metal bats or pipes.

An anonymous donor has offered a $10,000 reward information leading to arrests and convictions.
