Police arrested a man accused of following two women home from Walmart and robbing them of thousands of dollars and their new big screen TV.

"They took my peace of mind, they really did," said the victim.

It all happened in the 5400 block of Apple Blossom Drive in Hickory Hill in January.

The victims told police three men stole $4,000, which was their tax refund check, all while pointing a gun at their 7-year-old daughter.

"I knew there was nothing I could do," said the victim. "They had weapons, I didn't."

WMC Action News 5 first told you about the story in February, just after the attack, when MPD released a picture of the robbery suspect.

Police say the men went inside and stole a brand new 50-inch television and a wallet.

Wednesday night, the family learned that prosecutors charged Andrew Holmes with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

"I can get a little more sleep, but at the same time, you know I'm still kind of taking it a day at a time. Because it's still other people just out there, and it's kind of still got me a little terrified, a little shaky," said the victim.

Suspect Dariel Greenwood is still on the run.

While he roams free, this family worries how they're going to keep the lights on. They already struggle to make ends meet and weren't prepared to lose another $4,000.

"That money right there was to catch up on bills, get kids situated" the victim said.

The family hopes a social media campaign will help them get by.

"How would you feel if that happened to your family? Why us? You get out there and you get you a job and you can have everything or have more than what you took," said the victim.

Officers are still searching for the third suspect. Click here to make a donation to the family.
