The third of three men accused of being involved in the Feb. 14 armed robbery where a vehicle was stolen outside the JR Cricket restaurant in Fayetteville was taken into custody on Feb. 21.

Nicholas White, 22, of Decatur, was charged with armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and theft by taking auto, according to Fayetteville police.

Twenty-three-year-old Juan Carr, of Fayetteville, and 26-year-old Malik Amos, of Atlanta, were arrested shortly after the Feb. 14 robbery where two victims in the parking lot at the Summit Point Shopping Center were robbed and pistol-whipped.

Carr was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and felony drug possession, according to the Fayetteville Police Department.

Amos was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and misdemeanor marijuana possession, police said.

Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said police responded Feb. 14 at approximately 9:40 p.m. to an armed robbery call at 834 South Glynn Street in the Summit Point Shopping Center.

The suspects reportedly pistol-whipped two victims before fleeing the scene. Carr and Amos fled northbound in a vehicle, which was stopped by police at the intersection of Ga. highways 85 and 54. Carr and Amos were arrested at that time.

White took the keys to one of the victims’ vehicles and drove away in it. The vehicle was later recovered in DeKalb County.
