Jose Soto was arrested on a warrant at Twin Falls County Jail. Rafael Soto was arrested on a warrant at Canyon County Jail.

Police said the Sotos and Corey Mitchell, 35, who was arrested in July, entered a building on Lincoln Road occupied by two men sanding a boat. Officers said the three demanded cash and a fight ensued. In July, police said one of the suspects had a handgun, which was used to fire a round into the ceiling to scare the victims. One of the victims had a knife.

In the fight, one of the victims was stabbed, and Mitchell was struck in the head.
