The man suspected in the home invasion beating of an elderly Columbus couple has been arrested.
Calvin Lamar Anderson, 21, of Box Springs, Ga., was apprehended at approximately 7 p.m. Wednesday in Warner Robins, Ga., said Columbus Police Capt. Lem Miller. He had been sought in connection with the June 23 home invasion in which 93-year-old Roy Brooks and his 92-year-old wife, Reva, were attacked with a baseball bat.
"We had received information that Anderson was in Warner Robins and sent two detectives there," said Miller. The detectives had information that Anderson had been using credit cards in Warner Robins that had been stolen in the home invasion.
Members of the Houston County Sheriff's department located the car that had been taken in the robbery. It was in the parking lot of a Warner Robins mall.

"Our detectives and some deputies sat on the car until the suspect came out and got back in the car," said Miller. "Anderson was with three friends."
Miller said that Anderson was arrested, but not those with him.
"He has been transported back to Columbus," said Miller, "and will appear in Columbus Recorder's Court on June 30."
He is charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of burglary and one count of motor vehicle theft.
