CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - Two people are in custody Tuesday after CMPD officers said the duo led them on a chase into Mt. Holly in a stolen vehicle taken during an armed robbery.
The robbery happened at 11:38 p.m. Sunday, April 16 in the 1900 block of Sharon Oaks Lane.
The victim, Zachary Perlow, 36, told police as he was walking back to his vehicle from delivering Domino's Pizza in the area he saw two men sitting inside his vehicle. The suspects then got out of the car and robbed him at gunpoint - taking his vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Prius C. The vehicle had cash, telephone equipment, and credit/debit cards inside.
As the suspects were fleeing the scene, they hit a parked unoccupied 2005 Chevrolet Equinox belonging to Lauren Dale, 25. The crash caused about $1,500 in damages.
Days later on Tuesday, April 18 CMPD officers began pursing the Prius on Interstate-77 near 4th Street due to a missing license plate. Police realized the vehicle matched the description of the vehicle that was reported stolen on Sunday. Police attempted to pull the vehicle over - but it didn't stop.
A chase began and went into Mt. Holly. The pursuit ended on Main Street after stop sticks were deployed, police said.
The car pulled in to a McDonalds parking lot where a man and teenage girl were arrested. A BB gun was also recovered that had been thrown out of the vehicle, police said.
The young teen has been identified as a 15-year-old girl. Police said her name will not be released due to her age. She is charged with resisting an officer. The man has been identified as Robert Chisholm, 20. He is charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, possession of stolen goods, felony flee to allude, no operators license, aggressive driving, driving on the sidewalk, and speeding in the school zone.
