Statesman staffJuly 3, 2013 

An ongoing investigation into attacks on two women in May at the Boise Towne Square mall resulted in the arrests Wednesday afternoon of the suspect's wife and brother.

Jessica Brynn Macho, 28, and Richard Scott Macho, 29, were arrested at their Boise homes. They face felony charges of aiding and abetting a felony and destruction of evidence.

Gregory L. Macho, 31 of Boise, was arrested June 5. He faces four felony charges after police say he sexually assaulted one woman in the mall's parking lot on May 14, then ran over a second woman who was coming to her aid.

Police released security photos of the truck used in the attack in the days after the crime, and released a sketch of the suspect on May 31. Prosecutors said Macho altered his truck by painting it and removing stickers and other identifying marks.

Police said Gregory Macho's brother and wife knew of the attacks and helped him avoid being found and arrested. They are also accused of helping the suspect alter the appearance of his truck.
