Authorities have charged three Wake County men in connection to September break-in where a woman and her boyfriend were robbed at gunpoint in their Wilson home.
The Wake County Sheriff’s Office arrested 28-year-old Jonathan A. Shiloh and 20-year-olds Joshua T. Goode and Ira J. Davis on warrants related to the Wilson case, according to Wilson Police Sgt. Steve Stroud. The suspects face one count each of first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Shiloh, of Raleigh, received a $400,000 secured bond; Goode, of Raleigh, was jailed without bond; and Davis, of Knightdale, received a $300,000 secured bond.
Authorities responded to the 1900 block of Gee Lane regarding a suspicious vehicle on Sept. 22. A responding officer found a red Nissan Sentra and approached the vehicle to conduct an investigation, police said. That’s when the officer heard a woman yelling for help running toward him.
The victim, 24-year-old Slickia Kent, told police that several unknown men had broken into her home and robbed her and her boyfriend, 23-year-old Javoris Cox, at gunpoint, according to police. The vehicle that the officer was investigating then fled the scene.
Cox also came out of the house and told police the intruders assaulted him during the robbery and left through a back door with several personal items, according to police.
Medics treated Cox for minor injuries at the scene.
A police officer found the suspect vehicle and a chase ensued. The driver wrecked in the 400 block of Reid Street and ran from the car, but officials found the victims’ property inside.
On Sept. 28, Wilson police arrested 19-year-old Quincy L. Sutton, who also faces charges in the case including first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Authorities ask anyone with information to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255.
