Four men have been apprehended by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in two separate armed robbery cases, according to a report.
The first alleged robbery was said to have occurred around 1:20 a.m. Monday. Officers received a call from the 3300 block of Central Avenue that someone was committing a robbery. However, officers did not reach the scene in time to apprehend the suspects. The victim was able to give the officers a sufficient description of the suspects and the vehicle.
Officers received a call a little less than an hour later from the 3500 block of Burner Drive, just off Central Avenue, in reference to another robbery. The victim there stated he was surrounded by a similar vehicle with similar suspects whom demanded his wallet and fled the scene leaving him unharmed.
After speaking with this victim, officers located a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle while conducting a traffic stop. Officers were able to briefly detain the suspects and the victim identified the four as the group which robbed him. All four were apprehended and taken to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.
