    Details:

    On May 31, 2011 an unknown black male suspect approached a female victim at Teresa’s Food Store at 11733 15th Street N. The suspect asked the victim for $1.00 to purchase a cigarette. The victim removed her money, $115.00, from her purse and began to give the suspect $1.00. The suspect then grabbed all of the money that was in the victim’s hands and a struggle ensued. The suspect was able to overpower the victim and flee the northbound on 15th Street.

    Deputy T. Henninger who was monitoring the Eye On Crime camera system at the time of the incident, was able to capture the end of the robbery and observed the victim chasing the suspect. Deputy Henninger attempted to keep the suspect in view of the camera until patrol units arrived, but the suspect was able to elude arrest.
    Deputy Henninger was able to capture a good face shot of the suspect and an Alert was disseminated to patrol units.

    On June 7, 2011, at approximately 4:30 Deputy Phillip and Deputy Malone while conducting routine patrol in the area of 122nd Avenue and 15th Street, observed a black male who matched the suspect pictured in the Alert. Deputies attempted to make contact with the suspect but the suspect fled on foot. Deputies gave chase and after a brief foot pursuit were able to take the suspect into custody. After a brief interview, the suspect identified himself as Antonio Williams.

    Further investigation by deputies revealed that the suspect was actually Andrae Johnson, who has multiple felony convictions and who had an active misdemeanor warrant. Mr. Johnson was also positively identified as the person who committed the robbery and was subsequently charged.
