CLEVES, OH (FOX19) -

The second suspect wanted in connection with the burglary and kidnapping of a 90-year-old man has been arrested.

Jeremiah Ott, 33, appeared in court Monday for allegedly breaking into the World War II Veteran’s Cleves home on Nov. 2. The man was tied up at knife point and robbed of his car, credit cards and cash, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

Ott did yard work for the elderly victim, officials said in court. He is also accused of stealing cash from the man's home in September.

Police arrested Ott's alleged accomplice, Brandon Wilson, last week. Wilson, 21, was trying to steal another vehicle on Friday when he was arrested, police said.

Wilson admitted to his involvement in the aggravated burglary and kidnapping when he was interviewed by investigators, reports stated.

“He's 90, I don't understand how you could do that to anyone," said Amanda Prinzo, who has lived next the victim for about a year now. "He seems so sweet, he's very active and he does come over here sometimes."

The victim wasn't hurt in last week’s robbery but the incident was certainly enough to shake him and his neighbors up. Many of them now wondering if they're going to be the next one's targeted.

"I'm very cautious every time I go outside,” Prinzo said. “I look around because I have a baby so I'm very cautious. It's just scary."

Ott is charged with complicity to aggravated burglary and two counts of complicity to kidnapping. Wilson is charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and kidnapping.

Both suspects are held on $450,000 bonds.
