An Akron woman is now facing robbery charges in connection with an incident that occurred last month.
28-year-old Tyieshia Shellman is accused of helping her brother Tony Shellman and Steven Young rob a woman and her children at gunpoint at a home on Lake Street April 9.
Akron Police say Tyieshia Shellman wasn't armed, but helped the men enter the house and set up the robbery. Once inside, the men allegedly forced the woman's boyfriend to open the safe and then took off with cash and jewelry.
She was charged with Complicity to Commit Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Burglary and Safecracking.
Akron Police officials confirm both Tony Shellman and Young were charged with Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Burglary and Safecracking as well.
The Akron Police SWAT team thought it was closing in on a couple of suspects from a Monday afternoon home invasion robbery on Lake Street, but came up empty after entering a house in the 1000 block of Norka Avenue around 1:30 Wednesday morning.
Lt. Rick Edwards says detectives know who they are looking for.
Tony A. Shellman, 28, of Norka Avenue. Shellman is a black male, 5’8”, 170lbs, with a mustache and goatee and sometimes wears glasses.
Steven A. Young, 24, of Morgan Avenue. Young is a black male, 6’2”, 195 lbs.
Shellman and Young are wanted for Aggravated Burglary, Robbery and Safecracking.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Akron Police.
