Day’Jour Brown Charged With Robbing Man In Phone Scam

Monday, November 11, 2019

A Chattanooga man was charged with aggravated robbery after police said he scammed and robbed a man at gunpoint.

Day’Jour Brown, 18, advertised the selling of a phone on the LetGo app. The victim met Brown at West 37th Street around 7:30 p.m.

Police said Brown wore a ski mask and brandished a pistol at the victim. Brown demanded the victim hand over his phone, wallet and cash. Brown briefly removed his mask, and the victim noticed a cross tattoo on Brown’s forehead.

After the victim gave Brown what was demanded of him, Brown allowed the victim to leave the scene in his vehicle. The victim then went to the police when Brown used the stolen phone to send himself $250 on ApplePay.

Because ApplePay uses phone numbers to identify transactions, they were able to discern Brown’s phone number. From there, police were able to match the phone number to Day’Jour Brown. Brown’s Tennessee ID matched the victim’s description of the robber, as the man in the ID also had a cross tattoo on his face.

Brown was found to be included in multiple police reports from within a two-block radius of the incident, and his ID shows his residence to be nearby.

Warren Mackey: Why I Will Be Voting For County Commissioner Discretionary Spending - And Response

Because I am taking the lead on the County Commission in reinstating discretionary money, I take it that a Commissioner’s comments in the Chattanoogan.Com on July 13 where he asserts that giving discretionary money is a way of currying favor with voters in the next election was aimed at me. We haven’t had discretionary money for over five years now. In spite of not having the ... (click for more)
