Armed Robbery in Phoenix

Phoenix Armed Robbery Suspect Caught

Phoenix always suffers with criminal activity due to its proximity to the border. It seems like there’s never a lack in shootings, stabbings, or armed robberies in the area.

Now citizens are being thanked for their major part in capturing a man that was involved in the armed robbery of a Phoenix cell phone store. According to the Phoenix Police report, on January 8th there were three men with masks who entered into a cell phone store which was located near 32nd Street and Thomas Road.

One of the men was armed with a handgun and the other had a can of pepper spray. Kind of an odd choice of weapon, but whatever works for them.

Police say that the suspect pepper sprayed five people with the pepper spray inside of the store, one of those were customers. Two of the employees were pistol-whipped as they were ordered to open the safe.

According to the reports, another victim was reportedly bitten by a suspect. The trio allegedly stole a backpack with a computer inside and filled it with money. According to the reports they got around $1,000 and some cell phones. Sounds like it wasn’t worth the trouble.

Police Chase Robbery Suspect

A GPS tracker was activated after the men left and the police tracked the suspects to the 67th Avenue and Bethany Home Road. The men ran from the car and then split up.

One of the suspects, twenty-four year old, Vinchar Vincient Lemuel reportedly tried to break into several nearby apartments. Citizens at the complex were able to capture Lemuel and hold him for the police. Talk about a lucky situation for the police. The backpack was found nearby with the money still inside of the backpack.

Lemuel has been charged with armed robbery.

Knife Armed Robbery in Phoenix

Robbing a business with a knife wouldn’t be a smart thing unless you immediately get a hostage, however you never know. Recently a man walked into a 7-Eleven at 43rd Avenue and McDowell Road with a VERY big knife to rob the place. This happened on December 17th at 6 p.m.

From the surveillance video you can see the suspect making his way through the store and straight to the cashier.

Police are asking that if you have any information about this incident or the man then please call Silent Witness. They really want this guy behind bars for this armed robbery.
