GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are searching for an SUV that was stolen early Friday morning during an armed robbery outside a Greensboro strip club.
The robbery was reported around 4:30 a.m. at the Magic Gentleman’s Club at 2216 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
The victim told police he was in the parking lot when a man approached him and pointed a handgun at him. Police say the victim and suspect then “engaged in a physical altercation.” A gunshot was fired during the altercation, but the bullet did not hit anyone.
After the shot was fired, police say the victim ran away. The suspect then got inside the victim’s SUV — a Cadillac Escalade that was running in the parking lot — and drove away headed north on MLK Jr. Drive.
Two other suspects who were inside a Cadillac Deville in the parking lot also drove away, police said.
Shortly afterward, officers spotted the Deville on Elm Street. Police say they tried stopping the car, but the suspects sped away. The officers briefly lost sight of the car before it was found abandoned near the intersection of West Florida and Clemmons streets.
Police say they found the two suspects who were inside the car after sweeping the area with a K-9. One was arrested at the intersection of Randleman Road and West Terrell Street, while the second was taken into custody on Craig Street following a brief foot chase.
Police identified the pair as Anthony Harden, 26, and Lindsey Lee Robinson Jr., 24, both of Winston-Salem.
They are both charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon, and conspiracy to commit robbery. In addition, Harden is charged with driving with a revoked license, careless and reckless driving, felony speed to elude, two counts of hit and run, conspiracy to sell drugs, and possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine.
Officers are still searching for the third suspect and the victim’s SUV, which is described as a black 2007 Cadillac Escalade with N.C. tags “AFT-4333.”
No suspect description was provided.
Anyone with further information about the incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 373-1000.
