Three teens robbed
Two people were arrested before dawn today by Goldsboro police and charged with robbing three Goldsboro teen-agers in a home in the 300 block of Brownrigg Street.
Jamal Clerfoot, 20, and Joslyn Gabrielle Moore, 18, both of Brownrigg Street, were charged with armed robbery. Clerfoot was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $30,000 secured bond. Ms. Moore was jailed in lieu of a $15,000 secured bond.
The three victims told police that they went to the home at about 7:20 p.m. When they were leaving, several people approached the passenger side of their vehicle and pointed weapons at them, Investigator Dale Foster said.
Then the robbers demanded that the three teens get out, lie on the ground and empty their pockets, the report said. The robbers also searched the victims' vehicle as two women held firearms on the teens, the report said.
One victim, Christopher James Cooper, 18, was robbed of 40 compact discs and personal papers. Another, Bradley Thomas Deaver, 17, was robbed of a cell phone and $17. The third, Brandon Scott Barrow, 19, was robbed of $100.
When police responded to the home, two suspects drove by. Clerfoot and Ms. Moore were stopped several blocks away and arrested without incident, police said.
Foster was assisted by Investigators K.S. Harris and Trey Ball and A-shift officers. Foster said more arrests are possible.
