The second of two men accused of murder in the deaths of two other men found behind a Glenwood Avenue restaurant March 10 was arrested in Goldsboro on Thursday night, according to Raleigh police.
Officers from the department’s Fugitive Unit went to a home at 419 Denmark St. in Goldsboro with Goldsboro police and Wayne County sheriff’s deputies and captured Denzel Rashad Dancy, 18, without incident, a Raleigh police statement said.
Dancy was the first person police charged in the deaths of Pedro Joel Reyes Diaz and Allan Uriel Rodriguez, both 25 years old. Diaz lived in Raleigh, Rodriguez in Wendell, police said.
Arrest records showed Dancy lived in Greensboro.
Never miss a local story.
Diaz and Rodriguez were found dead in the early morning hours of March 10 in an SUV parked behind a Panera Bread restaurant at 6201 Glenwood Ave. Officers had been sent there after a man called 911 saying he saw the men inside the vehicle.
A week after the two were found, police said they had charged Daekwon Javon Ragland, 20, and they arrested him.
Police have not disclosed a possible motive for the killings or if detectives have located any weapons.
Dancy was returned to Wake County and was being held Friday without bail on two counts of first-degree murder.
Records show he also is charged with an armed robbery in Wayne County.
