ST. GEORGE — Washington County Sheriff’s deputies identified and apprehended a man accused of aggravated robbery Wednesday after he reportedly posted a video about the altercation on social media.

Deputies were dispatched to a report of a robbery at a cabin in New Harmony where a party was being held on Feb. 24, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in support of the arrest.

Upon arrival, deputies spoke with a man who reported that he had been assaulted at the party by a black male and a Hispanic male, threatened with a gun and then robbed, the arresting deputy wrote in a sworn statement.

On Feb. 26, while authorities were working to identify and track down the men, the victim located a video posted on social media by one of the suspects, who was subsequently identified as 22-year-old Chibuike Cletus Amadi, of St. George, according to the report.

The video reportedly showed Amadi talking about the incident at the party.
