23-year-old Antonio Vonzell McDonald and 28-year-old Travis Dewayne Green, both from Statesville, have been arrested by Statesville Police on charges of felony common law robbery.
At about 8:50 on Saturday night (June 21), Statesville Police responded to a robbery on the 1100 block of West Front Street. Two female witnesses and a male victim were standing by.
The victim told Officers he was walking down Front Street near the Family Dollar store when he was approached by two black males who asked him for a light. As the victim complied, one of the men pushed the victim into the street, dug into his pocket and took the victim’s wallet.
A vehicle passing by approached the victim and the driver asked if he needed help. The suspect then gave the victim his wallet back. The victim walked away and later noticed ten dollars missing from his wallet.
One suspect was wearing a lime green polo and straw hat. Officers located that suspect, Travis Green, on Patterson Street. Another male walked up to an Officer’s vehicle during the investigation. That individual was identified as the second suspect, Antonio McDonald. Both suspects were taken into custody.
McDonald and Green were each given a $10,000 secured bond. They will appear in District Court on July 8.
