Police on Thursday charged a second teen with armed robbery that happened outside Parham Street a store where customers were lined up waiting for a sale one morning last month.

Ervin Sherwood Sanders III, 18, of 1005 Glascock St. was arrested at an apartment complex on Gibney Drive, off Milburnie Road, records showed.

Police charged him with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, and he was held in the Wake County Detention Center in lieu of $225,000 bail.

The incident happened about 6:30 a.m. on May 28 in the 300 block of Parham Street, police said.

They arrested Jashon Marquis Estes, 19, a short time later after a customer who had driven away from the store encountered the men police said were Estes and Sanders and hit one with his car at South Person and East Martin streets, less than a block away.

The other suspect, who police said was Sanders, ran away.

Sanders was scheduled for a Friday court appearance on his charges. Estes has been held without bail since his arrest and is next scheduled for a court appearance June 20.
