THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- Thomasville police have made several arrests following an alleged assault and robbery on Council Street on July 14, according to Det. C.L. Jarrell.

Taylor Noel Jenkins, 16; Zion Matthew Ivery, 17; Jadarius Kesean Greene, 17; and Keyon Jordan Canty, 16; all of Thomasville, have each been charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill inflicting serious injury, felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Jenkins, Ivery and Greene were placed in the Davidson County Jail under $250,000 bonds. They are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 31.  Canty has not been apprehended.

Four juveniles ranging between 12-15 years old have also been charged in the incident, Jarrell said.

The incident happened on the night of July 14 on Council Street at Culbreth Avenue. John Richardson, 69, was walking home from going to get a drink at the store when he was attacked.

Investigators have determined that metallic knuckles or brass knuckles were used as a weapon, Jarrell said. Recovered surveillance video and witness statements helped with the arrests.

Richardson was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of his injuries and has since been released from the hospital.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges are expected, Jarrell said.
