UPDATE: Stuart Police said Thursday that a second suspect has been arrested in connection with the Stuart home invasion that occurred Sunday. 

Jorge Rodriguez was arrested on a robbery warrant. 


Returning home after a stop at Walmart turned into a terrifying ordeal for two people in Stuart, according to police.

A man confronted the pair as one of them began to open the door to their apartment.

"Give me everything you guys got!” he reportedly shouted and then began to strike one in the head, police said.

They resisted and eventually pushed the man out of the residence.

Police said they later found the suspect and identified him as Austin Nabeack. Police arrested Nabeack and charged him with home-invasion robbery.

One of the victims had to be hospitalized for severe trauma.
