BANK OF AMERICA ROBBERY SUBJECT IN CUSTODY

Devaughn Damar Jones, 33, of Greensboro, was arrested by Greensboro police as he tried to flee a Bank of America branch on East Bessemer Avenue. Police responded to a report of a robbery in progress at 9:39 a.m. on Nov. 22. Witnesses described Jones as a tall black man in a multi-colored striped shirt and said he entered the facility and passed a note demanding money to a teller. Greensboro police officers took Jones into custody without incident. Jones did not obtain any money and has been charged with attempted common law robbery.

RETIREMENT HOME, RESIDENTS ROBBED AT GUNPOINT

Rahaeim Johnson, 19, Terrence Trent, 20, and George Cherry, 18, were taken into custody by Winston-Salem police and are being held without bond for their suspected and alleged involvement in an armed robbery and kidnapping at Clare Bridge Retirement Home in Winston-Salem. Detectives with the department’s criminal investigations division identified the three black males as subjects involved. Officers responded to the facility on South Peace Haven Road for a reported robbery and were told that three to four black males entered the retirement home at 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 20 and restrained the employees. After restraining the employees, the suspects, who were armed with faces covered, entered the resident’s rooms taking flatscreen televisions, jewelry and other items belonging to the residents. One resident reported receiving minor injuries and was treated at the scene. Johnson, Trent and Cherry — all of Winston-Salem — were charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree kidnapping.

PANTS-LESS WOMAN CAN’T BE FOUND

Two people called into the Winston-Salem Police Department on Nov. 22 to report they had seen a white female running on Silas Creek Parkway who was wearing no pants and either an orange shirt or pink lingerie. About 30 officers on foot, a K-9 unit and FLIRS (heat detecting instruments) searched the area and were unable to locate the female or any evidence of a potential crime. The partially clad woman was reportedly last seen in the area of Silas Creek Parkway near Crown Forest Drive. Anyone with information on the identity of this individual is asked to call the Winston- Salem police non-emergency number at 336.773.7700. !
