A little over three weeks after armed individuals robbed Mark Cavendish and his family at their home, a man has been charged in connection with the crime.

According to the BBC, police arrested a 30-year-old man named Romario Henry on Saturday. Henry faces two counts of robbery.

The BBC also reports that two other individuals were arrested as well. They were released on bail until January 12.

Cavendish revealed on social media earlier this month that armed men broke into his home in Essex and robbed his family at knife point on November 27. Cavendish had recently returned home from the hospital after sustaining serious injuries in a crash at the Ghent Six.

“In the early hours of 27th November, while recovering at our Essex family home shortly after leaving Intensive Care, 4 masked and armed men forced their way in to our home as we slept, threatened my wife and children and violently attacked me. At knifepoint, they proceeded to ransack our belongings,” Cavendish wrote on December 7.

Cavendish noted that “two watches of great sentiment and value” were stolen, “but far, far worse to be taken was the sense of security, safety, privacy, and dignity that my young family and everybody else is entitled to in their own home.”
