Police charged that a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl robbed a man at gunpoint Wednesday and encouraged a 15-year-old to join in.
Knightdale police went to the Knights Inn at 3804 New Bern Ave. in Raleigh just before midnight to arrest Raesha’d Lamonte Wright of 501 Sternwheel Way and India Teyanna Knight of 106 Stanway Drive. Both addresses are in Knightdale.
Arrest warrants said the pair had a handgun earlier in the day and robbed a man of his wallet, phone and lunch bag, and tried to steal his 2006 Mazda.
Authorities did not identify the 15-year-old or divulge the gender, but Knight and Wright were both charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor in addition to robbery with a dangerous weapon and attempted felony larceny.
