SCOTT COUNTY, Va. -

Police in Virginia have arrested two men after two incidents earlier this month in Gate City.

Scott County, Virginia Sheriff John Puckett tells us 18-year-old Cody Hensley and 19-year-old Dakota Dolton are charged with malicious wounding, robbery and conspiracy.

We’re told the two are accused of robbing a neighbor of money and a watch and hitting him on the head.

Police say they then broke into a second home a few days later.

Police say a suspect's mother may also be facing charges after she's accused of cutting herself to cover up the crime. Charges are pending against her.
