CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte-Mecklenburg detectives have arrested three suspects for an armed robbery that occurred at a Bank of America in South End on Friday.
Kendell Alexander, 57, Steven McCory, 36, and Derrius Fleming, 30, were all charged for Armed Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon in this case.
Shortly before 10 a.m., officers responded to the bank on Iverson Way in reference to an armed robbery in progress.
Officers say when they arrived at the scene, a victim told them that two subjects brandished firearms and took property from the business.
A short time later, officers noticed the suspect vehicle turning into a nearby neighborhood and watched as the suspects attempted to switch vehicles.
Officers then attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the new vehicle, but the driver refused to stop, and a pursuit ensued.
Police say the chase ended at the dead-end of Spruce Street, when the suspects crashed their car and took off on foot, attempting to cross I-77.
The CMPD Aviation Unit, K-9 Unit, and other officers assisted in searching for the suspects.
Police say Alexander, McCoy, and Fleming were detained without further incident and taken into custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office following an interview with detectives.
The investigation into this case is active and ongoing.
Police ask anyone with more information to call 911 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or http://charlottecrimestoppers.com/.
