Man accused of robbery

On June 20, a North Carolina man was taken into custody after he was accused of forcing a family to take him shopping at gunpoint. The 29-year-old man was ultimately charged with second-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

According to authorities, the man knocked on the door of a residence located in Durham at about 7 a.m. One of the residents gave the man an unknown amount of money. The man then allegedly displayed a gun and forced a family consisting of an adult man, an adult woman and two minor children to get into the family's vehicle. The man forced the family to withdraw more money from an ATM and then take him to a convenience store. He then made the family take him shopping at a Target where he purchased several bags worth of clothing and gift cards.

While in the store, one of the family members alerted an employee. Officers arrived at the store at about 8:30 and took the man into custody without incident. The accused man was also connected to a number of other robberies that had occurred just prior to this incident.

Those who are accused of committing felonies face serious legal consequences that could have an impact on their future. For example, a person convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon could face a jail sentence, probation and expensive fines. A criminal law attorney may create a strong defense based on the evidence the authorities have. Depending on certain factors unique to the case, the attorney may challenge evidence or look for weaknesses in the case that could result in a more favorable outcome.
