Clare Bridge Assisted Living in Winston-Salem

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Two men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery and kidnapping at an assisted living facility in Winston-Salem on Wednesday.

Detectives identified Rahaeim Johnson and Terrence Trent as two of the suspects responsible for the incident at Clare Bridge Assisted Living. Both suspects are facing charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon and kidnapping.

They are both in jail under a $250,000 bond each. Photos of the subjects have not been released at this time.

Police are still looking for a third suspect. Early reports suggested four suspects, but that information has since been changed.

Officers responded to the facility around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The suspects entered the home and proceeded to restrain the five employees while they robbed the facility.

The suspects searched the residents’ rooms for valuables and fled the scene with several flat screen TVs, jewelry and other personal items. Police say about a dozen residents were robbed of their personal belongings.

One resident received minor injuries when a gunman grabbed his arm, police say.

Officers have not said how the men entered the facility. There were no visible signs of a break-in.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Winston-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.
