BELLEVUE, WI (WTAQ) - Two Milwaukee men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery and home invasion in Bellevue back in July.

According to a criminal complaint, 24-year-old David Vega and 20-year-old Luis Ortiz are facing eight charges stemming from the crime July 11 at 2445 Van Lake Court.

Just after 11 p.m., Vega, Ortiz and one other man burst into the home, tied up the couple and tortured them, before getting away with money and a car.

Brown County Sheriff's got help from Washington County Sheriff's Department in Minnesota, who were investigating a similar crime.

Cell phone records and the discovery of one of Vega's shoes in a ditch near the Bellevue home tie him to the crime.

The sheriff's department refused comment to WTAQ about the arrests, citing the ongoing investigation.
