2 More Suspects Arrested in Accomack Co. Assault Case

Posted:

KELLER, Va.- Authorities say two more suspects are now in custody in connection with an Accomack County, Va. assault that put a 19-year-old man in the hospital earlier this month.

Accomack County Sheriff Larry Giddens said that on Monday, Sept. 21, 29-year-old Julian Travis Scarborough and 20-year-old Byron Maurice Mears, both of Painter, turned themselves in to authorities. Scarborough was charged with malicious assault, use of firearm in commission of a felony and possession of firearm by convicted felon. Scarborough is being held at the Eastern Shore Regional Jail with bond denied. Mears is being held in the Accomack County Jail with bond denied. 

Giddens said the arrests stem from an incident that occurred on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 3 at the Robinson Trailer Park in Keller. On that day police received a report of shots fired in the area of the trailer park. Giddens said that when deputies arrived in the area, they discovered that the suspects had fled the scene and that a 19-year-old resident of the trailer park, identified as Omar Hickman, had been severely beaten.  He was transported by Wachapreague ambulance to Shore Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.  He was released five days later.

Another suspect in the crime, 20-year-old Myron Mears of Keller, was arrested Sept. 8 on a charge of malicious assault. He was released on a $2,500 bond.

Giddens said that two more suspects in the assault are still at-large. They have been identified as 34-year-old William Thomas Smith of Wachapreague and Natasha Smith of Painter. They are both wanted on charges of malicious assault and have been entered into the National Crime Information Center and the Virginia Criminal Information Network as wanted persons. 

William Smith is described as a black male, approximately 6-foot-tall and 160 pounds. Natasha Smith is only described as a black female.

Anyone with information as to the location of William Smith and Natasha Smith is asked to contact the Accomack County Sheriff's Office at (757) 787-1131 or (757) 824-5666.
