PRICHARD, Ala. (WALA) - Now that Joseph Caples is behind bars the victim and her family plan to return home soon.
The victim and her daughter had been staying out of the area because they feared for their safety - but with this latest arrest they plan to get on with their lives.
It took police less than a week to capture Joseph Caples, the suspect they said beat a cashier with his pistol during a Sunday, June 30 robbery.
"She's really excited that he's caught and now she wants to go home," said the victim's daughter.
We told the victim and her daughter about his arrest Thursday, July 4.
"I think it's kind of boosted her spirits up a little bit more that he's not on the street and he can't do it to anybody else," said the daughter.
Waking to the news of Caples arrest, they can now relax, at least a little bit.
"I really thought it was going to take a little bit longer," said the daughter.
The victim's daughter said the Mobile County District Attorney's Office has taken over the investigation.
She believes that's why Caples was captured so quickly.
"They said it was a nationwide search. They were trying to get this guy quick," said the daughter.
Mobile Metro Jail records show Caples was booked into Metro jail 1 a.m. July 4.
Caples is charged with robbery and assault, but the victim said the DA's office plans to file more charges against him and Zachery Moore.
You may remember, police said Moore is the man in the white t-shirt on the surveillance video.
"They said since he watched the attack and didn't try to help that he would get more charges filed on him also as soon as the other fella was picked up," said the daughter.
Jail records show that neither Caples nor Moore has been assigned a court date or been given bond.
We will continue to follow this case and let you know of any changes.
