Clayton police Thursday lodged armed robbery and kidnapping charges from May 1 against a man whom Raleigh police charged with an armed attempted holdup on May 12.
Travion Lamont Harris, 20, was served with an arrest warrant that accused him of holding up a Han-Dee Hugo’s convenience store at U.S. 70 Business and Amelia Church Road, less than 2 miles from his home at 904 Greenwood Drive, Clayton officials said.
He has been held in the Wake County Detention Center since his arrest.
The robbery happened about 10 p.m., when a clerk was alone in the store, Clayton police said. They used video surveillance footage and other evidence to link Harris to their case, they said.
May 12, Raleigh police arrested Harris and Deante Markeith Cooper, 27, of 101 Holly Point Place in Clayton were arrested after a chase that led onto Interstate 440 from the Lagos Supermarket on Atlantic Springs Road.
Both men were charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy.
Harris, who police said went into the store with a handgun, was also charged with assault by pointing a gun and second-degree kidnapping.
Cooper, who police said was waiting in the getaway car, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon because the store owner was hit after going outside the store.
Police said at the time that they did not know why the robbery failed.
