GREENSBORO, N.C. — A High Point man is facing charges connected with an armed robbery and shooting that occurred at a car wash on Phoenix Drive the morning of Aug. 10.
Rachad Lamar Robinson, 22, of High Point, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon Tuesday while confined in the Greensboro Jail Central for unrelated offenses, according to Greensboro police Public Information Officer Susan Danielsen.
Police were dispatched the car wash near Bob’s Convenient Mart at 2620 Phoenix Drive at 9:16 a.m. Aug. 10 after a patron called 911 to report the incident. Upon arrival, police found Leroy Carter, 50, applying pressure to a gunshot wound to his right thigh.
Carter told officers he was washing his car when he was approached by a tall, slim black male who demanded his money, shot him and then took his wallet.
Images from the business’ surveillance camera were included as part of a Crime Stoppers release and distributed to media outlets. Tips from viewers assisted investigators in linking Robinson to the incident, Danielsen said.
Robinson remains incarcerated under a $300,000 secured bond associated with these charges.
Carter has since been released from the hospital.
