MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities in South Dakota say five people have been arrested in Mitchell in connection with a home invasion in Yankton.

Police in Yankton say those in custody are 23-year-old Demil Spears, 24-year-old Devonjae Strong, 26-year-old Jo Deonta Thomas, 25-year-old Derrell Williamson, all Chicago residents, and 23-year-old Hailee Rae Horn Flores, of Parkston.

Authorities say all suspects face multiple charges, including first-degree robbery and aggravated assault.

Police say three people initially tried to enter the Yankton home Tuesday night, but the homeowner scared them away. Police say the robbers returned an hour later and robbed the residents at gunpoint.

Thomas and Flores were arrested at a hotel, where police found a stolen vehicle linked to the suspects. The other three people were arrested after police found another stolen vehicle.
