By Dennis Minich

Two more people have been arrested and charged in the Oct. 17 robbery and assault of a 19-year-old Harrisonville man.

Vivianna M. Samek, 17, and Devin J. Young, 17, both of Harrisonville, were arrested last week and charged with one count each of first-degree accessory/ robbery, first-degree accessory assault and armed criminal action.

They are charged along with three others who were arrested last week with the same charges, Garrett M. Siegenthaler, 19, and Nicholas W. Schaffert, 17, both of Harrisonville; and Aaron J. Collins, 18, Drexel.

The five are charged in connection with an assault on Dominic McCoy in the parking lot at the First Baptist Church, 504 W. Wall St.

The five facing charges were all being held on $25,000 cash only bonds in the Cass County Jail, but bail hearings were scheduled for Monday. Lt. Chris Osterberg of the Harrisonville Police Department said no further information about the incident is being released at this time, but did say the incident is still under investigation.

McCoy’s head was slashed from his ear down to his neck and he was also stabbed. McCoy was treated at a Kansas City hospital.
