WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP)— Three men were arrested after police said an armed robbery led to a police chase from Winston-Salem to Greensboro Wednesday.

Dontae Llamar Simms, 24, and Stephon Lamar Pace, 26, both of Greensboro, were arrested after allegedly robbing a man at gunpoint outside a Winston-Salem apartment and fleeing the area.

The victim called police at about 2:50 p.m. after claiming to be robbed in the area of 260 Village Creek Lane.

Police said the suspects fled the scene in a white Chevrolet Malibu headed toward Greensboro. Police said the victim followed them.

Police said Pace allegedly pointed a gun at the victim several times during the chase.

Winston-Salem police started chasing the suspects after finding them on I-40 eastbound near Peters Creek Parkway. They lost the suspects due to speed and traffic.

Guilford County authorities were alerted about the situation. After entering Greensboro, the suspects left the Malibu on Gallimore Dairy Road, police said.

Simms, the driver, and Pace, the passenger, allegedly got into a vehicle driven by Joseph Agbozo, 24.

Greensboro police arrested the suspects in Greensboro at 7017 Albert Pick Road. Winston-Salem police took them into custody.

Simms and Pace face charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon. Simms has also been charged with fleeing to elude arrest and Pace with assault by pointing a gun.

Agbozo was served with an unrelated warrant of assault on a female. Police are still investigating his involvement.

Simms and Pace received $125,000 bonds and Agbozo was not allowed bond. Police did not provide a mugshot of Agbozo.

Anyone with any information can call Crimestoppers at 727-2800.
