CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have made a third arrest in connection to a robbery and carjacking last weekend.

Around 5 a.m. Saturday morning, officers responded to the 600 block of North Davidson Street in reference to an armed robbery where a man and woman arrived at a residence and were confronted by two armed black men and one black woman. 

During the robbery the suspects assaulted and tied up both victims.  Both victims sustained minor injuries, police said.  The suspects took the male victim’s bank card and used it at a local ATM machine.  The suspects also took the man's vehicle, a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which has not yet been recovered. 

During the course of the crime one victim was able to flee and call 911.  Responding officers arrived on scene and took one robbery suspect, 25-year-old Anne Alobwede, into custody without incident.

Alobwede was then transported to police headquarters where she was interviewed by detectives.  

Upon completion of the interview, Alobwede was charged with two counts of first degree kidnapping, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, felony breaking and entering, aid and abet - felony larceny and communicating threats.  

This investigation is ongoing and additional charges for Alobwede are potentially pending. 

On Monday, officers say they spotted the other suspects in the stolen Jeep. They attempted to pull him over, but the police say the man led them on a pursuit. The chase ended in the 1700 block of Statesville Avenue, where the suspects ran from the vehicle.

Officers and K-9’s searched the area and found Demecho Lipscomb Anderson, 33.

The third suspect was arrested Tuesday. Dave Alobwede, 27, was taken into custody without incident (mug shot not yet available). Both suspects face the same charges as Anne Alobwede, but Anderson is also charged with traffic offense.

Anyone with information concerning this case or suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
