Greenville police have charged 6 teens in falls park robbery of cyclist!

Greenville Ghost NEWS Network is proud to announce that yet another band of wannabe thugs with a BB gun have been charged with the crime they committed.

Back in August, a cyclist riding through falls park was robbed by a group of 6 teenagers, one of which had a BB gun. The victim Gideon Hackett was in the park after 10pm and was reportedly punched in the eye and knocked down, the other thugs began kicking him

Thanks to CrimeStoppers, an anonymous tip gave the names of several involved in the robbery.

Police identified the suspects being charged as adults as Jaylan Fair, Frederick Irby, Dontavious Jenkins, Rodney Jones and Deandre Norris. They range in ages from 15-19 and they will all be charged as adults except for the 15 year old. The one with the BB gun will also be charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

As an opinionated business owner downtown Greenville, I am happy to see progress being made in curbing more of this crap.
