Blotter 

• Plainclothes detectives arrested three men Aug. 17 after spotting them robbing six people at a downtown pub. The detectives spotted two people acting suspiciously at the intersection of Bull and Liberty. The two were wearing bandanas as they robbed restaurant customers sitting at sidewalk tables in front of the Six Pence Pub. One suspect held a gun on the victims while the other began taking their wallets. Officers drew their guns and moved in to arrest both suspects, who ran south on Liberty Street. They were captured after a brief chase. During the pursuit, one suspect dropped a gun and a wallet that were recovered later. Anshawn Stephens, 21, and Korian Flouroy, 18, were arrested and charged with armed robbery and obstruction by fleeing. While they were being apprehended, two other suspects were seen in a car with headlights off picking up a passenger. The car then fled the area at a high rate of speed before it crashed at 37th and Fulmer. Both men ran, but one was apprehended by a K-9 officer. He was later identified as Robert Palmer, 20. Investigation revealed that the car was used to drop off both Flouroy and Stephens in the area of the armed robbery.

 

• An officer responded to a North Lathrop address in response to a shooting. A man told the officer that he and his passenger were in the area looking for his brother. He said they were traveling south on Carolan Street between North Lathrop Street and Clearview Road when a vehicle pulled in front of them and stopped. The man said a man got out of the car and came to the driver’s side. The suspect then stuck a semi-automatic pistol into the car and said, “Give me your goddamned money.” The victim said the driver of the vehicle that cut them off went to the passenger’s side of his car. He said he didn’t see a gun in the driver’s hand. The first suspect tried to get the keys out of the ignition and the victim struggled and put the car in reverse. The suspect shot the victim in his left leg as he backed away. The victim then drove his car around the car that was blocking his path and turned west on Clearview Road. He said that the two suspects pursued them and shot at them while they chased them. After a series of left and right turns, the victim was able to elude the suspects. He was unfamiliar with the streets, so he was not able to tell police his exact path. When the man got to Highway 80, his passenger dialed 911. Forensics was called in and the witness was taken back to the crime scene so he could show officers where the incident took place and their travel path, while the shooting victim was transported to the hospital. Two shell casings, both .45 caliber, were recovered at the scene.

 

• Police were called to a shop on Abercorn Street in the downtown area because of a report of a hold-up alarm. On their way to the scene, the call was changed to an armed robbery in progress. Upon arrival, officers met with the victim and got a detailed description of the suspects, which was broadcast to all supporting officers. Two men who matched the descriptions of the suspects were detained a half-block west of the scene. The victim was taken to the location for a “show-up,” but told police neither of the men were the ones who had robbed her. One of the men was released, but the other was taken to the Chatham County Detention Center for an outstanding warrant.  The victim said one of the men came into the shop and calmly said, “I need you to do me a favor and give me all your money.” The victim thought the suspect was joking until she saw him holding a box cutter knife in his left hand. The suspect then pulled the telephone off the wall by its cord. The victim gave the suspect all the large bills in the cash box, leaving only $1 bills and change. The suspect then noticed the victim’s purse and asked if there was money inside. At that point, the victim became angry and told the suspect to “get out.” He then tried to get her to lie down on the floor, but she refused, and he left the scene with a second suspect, who acted as a lookout. ƒç
