Man arrested in attempted robbery of credit union

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Tuesday arrested a 49-year-old man in the Dec. 10 attempted robbery of the State Employees Credit Union at 901 N. Wendover Road.

Cephas L. Williams Jr. was charged with attempted common law robbery and transported to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, where he was in custody late Tuesday.

Shortly before 11 a.m. Dec. 10, a man entered the credit union and handed a note to the teller demanding money, police said. The man left the bank before receiving any money.

On Monday, police said, a Crime Stoppers tip led them to identify Williams as the suspect in the attempted robbery. Detectives also learned Williams had several outstanding warrants in Gaston County.

Williams was arrested on Lockmont Drive on Tuesday for the outstanding warrants and was transported to police headquarters to be interviewed.

Police ask that anyone with additional information in the robbery case call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
