Greensboro woman fights off armed robber
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are investigating four armed robberies in Greensboro that may involve the same man, Spokesperson Susan Danielsen told FOX8.
Though investigators can’t say for sure that all four incidents are connected, the suspect descriptions and getaway car in all four incidents are strikingly similar.
On May 29, around 12:40 a.m., a man robbed a woman on the 3500 block of North Church Street.
“The suspect descriptions: black male, light skin tone, approximately 6’2, skinny build and wearing a hat with an ‘A’ on it,” police said in a press release.
On the same night, around 4:30 a.m., a man robbed a woman on the 1400 block of Woodside Drive.
On June 4, around 7:45 p.m., a man robbed a woman in her hair-cutting business on the 2500 block of East Bessemer Avenue.
“The suspect was described as a black male, in his late twenties, approximately 6’0” tall, with a slim build,” said police in a press release.
Last night, around 6:30 p.m., a man robbed a woman named Jada Doggett in her front yard on West Terrell St.
“The suspect descriptions: black male, dark skin tone, 5’9 to 6’0, thin build and wearing a black ‘NY Yankees’ hat and black shirt,” police said in a press release.
In each of the incidents, the suspect was the passenger or operator of a dark-colored Lexus car. In at least three incidents, the victims reported the suspect was wearing a hat.
Jada Doggett is a school bus driver by day and bail bondswoman by night. She had just arrived home from her school job when a man, who had been hiding behind her house, came at her with a gun.
“He said give me what you got. He pointed at my pocket-book. He starts pulling it, and I’m screaming and hollering, ‘Help, Help!’” explained Doggett.
“He kept saying, ‘I’m gonna shoot you!’ In broad daylight? In my front yard?” she questioned. “Who does that?”
Doggett feels violated to be attacked in her own yard. She struggled with the man until the straps of her purse broke. He then knocked her down and ran off with the purse. Police recovered it a few streets over, but her money and bottle of blood pressure medication were gone.
“Police probably would be coming over here with a body bag to pick him up if I would have had my gun, because I would be shooting to kill, not to injure,” she insisted.
“I want some justice. Immediately,” she insisted.
Investigators say they are actively working each of these armed robbery cases and determining if they are connected.
