— Fayette County officials released the names of two men who were wanted in connection with the beating and robbing of a North Page man Saturday, hours after a female suspect in the case turned herself in to police.

Police are asking the public for help in locating the male suspects.

Jackie Rae “Dink” Humphrey, 31, of Minden, turned herself in to police Thursday morning, said Cpl. Jim Sizemore of Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.

The charge stemmed from an incident in which Humphrey accompanied Danny Mitchell Toney Jr., 52, and Mark Toney, 44, both of Glen Jean, to the North Page home of Donald Walker Saturday evening, according to Fayette officials.

When Humphrey asked to speak privately with Walker, who was an acquaintance, the men entered Walker’s home and began beating him with wooden clubs and demanding money, according to police. After stealing a small amount of cash, the trio left Walker’s residence.

Humphrey stole Walker’s truck and abandoned it in Page hours later, police said. She faces an unrelated arson charge, Sizemore added.

Walker was treated at Plateau Medical Center and released.

Police were still searching for Danny Toney and Mark Toney Thursday evening and asked that anyone with information contact the Fayette Emergency Operations Center at 304-574-3590, Crime Stoppers at 304-255-7867 or onlne at http://fayettesheriffwv.net or on Facebook at “Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.”
