A third suspect has been arrested in connection with robberies in Little Italy last month.

Dashaun Newton, 18, was arrested, Cleveland Police said. He has not been charged.

Eighteen-year-old David Harrison, who police said was arrested on Saturday, is charged with aggravated robbery, according to court records. 

The arrest of Harrison came soon after Johnchez Phillips, 20, was also arrested in connection with the incidents. Phillips is accused of pistol-whipping a priest in Little Italy while trying to steal his car on Dec. 5. 

Police took a suspect into custody in December, but that individual was later released. Police did not release the person's identity. 

On Dec. 23, an arrest warrant for Phillips was issued
