GLOUCESTER — A Hampton teen, a Gloucester man and a New York man are in custody on armed robbery charges after they allegedly brandished handguns early Saturday morning before taking cash and other items from victims sitting in a vehicle at Damon's Sports Bar & Grill.
The Gloucester County Sheriff's Office received the report of the armed robbery at 2:49 a.m., said Lt. Scott Little. The victims said three perpetrators ran up to their vehicle with bandannas covering faces while flashing handguns.
After obtaining cash and other items, the three suspects left in a dark Nissan Sentra. A short time later on Hickory Fork Road, Gloucester Sheriff's deputies saw a vehicle matching that description traveling east and attempted to stop it. A short pursuit followed until the vehicle stopped on Ashley Street.
One suspect fled from the vehicle while the other three were taken into custody, Little said. Arrested on charges of robbery, grand larceny, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony were Morris Kristen Persaud, 25, of Queens, N.Y., and Malcolm William Minerve, 24, of Sherwood Drive in Gloucester
