Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Tuesday morning they have arrested a second man in connection with the robbery of a woman last week in a parking deck at Carolinas Medical Center.
Quay Laurentis Davis, 19, was taken into custody by officers earlier Tuesday in the 1500 block of Long Paw Lane, in a northwest Charlotte neighborhood near Interstate 485 and Mount Holly Road.
Police say Davis was interviewed by detectives and then charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and felony conspiracy. Last Thursday, police arrested Joshua Aaron Wilson, also 19. He was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy.
The robbery took place shortly after 1 a.m. last Tuesday at the parking deck in the 1000 block of Blythe Boulevard. The victim said she was robbed at gunpoint, and the getaway vehicle was described as a Jeep Grand Cherokee that was about 10 years old and had after-market black rims and tires.
Police say a tip led them to a residence on Taylor Drive, where they found a vehicle fitting the description of the Jeep used in the robbery. The owner of the vehicle, Wilson, was interviewed by detectives and then arrested.
Both suspects have been arrested multiple times before. Wilson has been arrested five times over the last 2 1/2 years, according to Mecklenburg County Jail records. This is Davis sixth arrest in the past three years and his third arrest since early February.
Detectives ask that anyone with additional information in the case contact the Crime Stoppers tip line, at 704-334-1600.
