Two men have been charged with robbing a man at gunpoint as he walked along North Crest Road on Missionary Ridge.

Charged with aggravated robbery and criminal conspiracy are Sean Dylan Morrison, 18, of 3821 14th Ave., and Jonathan Julio Perez, 29, of  1908 Tinsley Place.

Benjamin Carr said he was robbed near 270 N. Crest Road by two males in a red Camaro. He said he was walking his dog when he saw the Camaro pass by. As he got near 300 N. Crest Road the Camaro drove up to him and the passenger leaned out. He was wearing an orange ski mask and armed with a silver revolver.

He demanded the victim's money and took $30 and his wallet before they drove off.

Mr. Carr was able to get the license number on the vehicle and it was traced to a Sean Morrison driving a red Camaro and living on 14th Avenue.

Police located the red Camaro at Perez's residence on Tinsley Place. Officers spotted an orange ski mask inside the vehicle.

Christine Libertus said she saw Morrison and Perez together in the Camaro shortly after the time of the robbery.

Mr. Carr picked Morrison out of a photo lineup as the driver of the Camaro.

Police said Morrison admitted taking part in the robbery, saying he was driving and Perez wore the mask and wielded the gun.

He said the wallet was tossed out on North Crest Road.

Perez denied any involvement.

Use The Current Rail System Already In Place - And Response
