Fourth suspect charged in Charleston robbery

Posted: Updated:

The fourth suspect in a Charleston robbery turned himself in to police on Thursday afternoon, according to Charleston Police.

Timothy Schmachtenberger, 22, of Canton, Ohio, was released on bond.

Charges were already filed against three other University of Charleston students in connection to the April 24 beating and robbery. Quincy Washington and Robbie Dreher appeared in Kanawha County court for preliminary hearings on Thursday. They turned themselves in after police released images from surveillance video shortly after the crime. The judge granted a request to reduce bond for both suspects.

Terrel Lipkins, a fellow UC classmate, had already been arrested. Lipkins waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Thursday. He's currently out of jail on bond.

Washington, Dreher and Lipkins were all members of the University of Charleston basketball team. They were dismissed from the team, after the charges surfaced.

The four men are also persons of interest in yet another beating and robbery. John Dolin was the victim in that crime that happened on April 20. He is still in the hospital.
