BOISE -- Boise Police have arrested two people and charged them with helping a suspect avoid arrest after an attack on two women in a retail center parking lot on May 14.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jessica Macho and 29-year-old Richard Macho, both of Boise, are being charged with aiding and abetting, and destruction of evidence.

Jessica Macho is the wife of suspect Gregory Macho, and Richard Macho is Gregory Macho's brother.

Gregory was arrested June 5, and charged with aggravated battery after attacking two women in a Boise Towne Square Mall parking lot.

Officers believe the motive for the first attack was sexual assault, officers say the second woman was hit by the suspect's truck after she attempted to intervene and stop the crime.

Police arrested both Richard Macho and Jessica Macho late Wednesday afternoon at their Boise homes.

Each is accused of having knowledge that the crime occurred, and helping the suspect avoid detection and arrest.

They are also accused of helping alter the appearance of the suspect's vehicle, which is evidence in the case against Gregory Macho.
