Police say a fifth and final suspect has been arrested in the beating and robbery of a group of West Michigan college students and the sexual assault of one of the students.

The 19-year-old surrendered Friday afternoon to Grand Rapids police. He is expected to be arraigned Monday.

Dorian Jones and Rederick Melton, both 20, and 25-year-old Brandon Towns were arraigned Friday on first-degree criminal sexual assault, armed robbery and home invasion charges.

A 14-year-old boy also faces charges in the case.

Police say the five attended a party Sunday night at a home near Grand Valley State University's Pew Campus and returned about 4 a.m. Monday. Investigators say young men in the home were pistol-whipped and tied up while a young woman was sexually assaulted.
