All 10 suspects accused of chasing and threatening a Monessen man who is a witness in an attempted homicide case have been apprehended, according to Monessen police.

Acting police Chief John Mandarino said one of the two remaining suspects, a 17-year-old male, turned himself in Tuesday morning. Police and members of the Westmoreland County Sheriff's Department also arrested the final suspect, a 17 year-old female, Tuesday at her city residence, Mandarino said.

Those two are part of a group of five juveniles and five adults that allegedly chased down Jaisen Irwin 9:34 p.m. April 18 at his mother's residence on Summit Avenue.

Police said the harassment has been an ongoing issue since Irwin testified earlier this year against five people who allegedly shot at him Dec. 4. The five suspects reportedly believed Irwin was spreading rumors that some of them were involved in the murder of a city man, Chris “Snax” Fincik, Dec. 3.
