Jake Harris Suspects Arrested in Brutal Beating

Cops have nabbed 2 people for beating and robbing Jake Harris and then leaving him for dead on the side of a road. 

The suspects, Jorel Fultz and Amanda Ritter, were arrested late Tuesday. The couple faces 1st degree felony robbery charges -- plus an extra assault charge for Fultz.

As we reported ... the former "Deadliest Catch" star said he had caught a ride back into town over the weekend after a night at a casino in Washington state, before a fight broke out and he was thrown out of the vehicle. He woke up bloodied and battered on the side of the road ... his wallet, ID and cash nowhere in sight.

Law enforcement sources tell us Fultz and Ritter were arrested in the city of Spokane, but will eventually be transferred to Everette, where the alleged crime occurred. They're both being held without bond.
