NORWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Four people have been arrested in connection with a bizarre robbery in southwestern Colorado.

The San Miguel County sheriff’s office says two men are accused of assaulting three people on Sept. 6 outside Norwood, Colo., allegedly tying them up, robbing them and holding them for over 12 hours. The victims were able to escape the next morning and notified authorities.

One of the alleged robbers, 40-year-old Gregory Broome of Clovis, N.M. has been arrested. He is being held at the Curry County Detention Center and doesn’t have a lawyer yet.

Three others accused of either concealing evidence or being accessories are also in custody.

Authorities are still looking for another person of interest — 32-year-old Ulises Omar Felix. They’re offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
