Two robberies at the same car wash in North Little Rock resulted in the arrests of three Missouri men on Monday.
The incidents occurred Sunday night and early Monday morning at Splash Time Car Wash, located at 3624 JFK Blvd., according to a statement from the North Little Rock Police Department.
Police say D'maury Wilson was at the business at 9:12 p.m. Sunday when three men, one of whom had a black pistol, walked up to him.
One of the suspects punched Wilson while another demanded for his car and told the armed suspect to shoot him. Wilson fled from the suspects on foot, while one of the men drove off in Wilson's black Mercury Mountaineer. The vehicle was recovered by police a short time later near the intersection of McCain and North Hills boulevards.
In another incident, the same three men went back to the car wash at 12:10 a.m. Monday and approached Terrence Verge. One of the men asked Verge for directions before pulling out a black pistol. The suspects then took Verge's vehicle.
North Little Rock police located the vehicle and the three suspects at an Exxon gas station located at the intersection of Pershing Boulevard and Main Street.
Police identified the three robbers as Judon Mayberry, 24, of Steele, Mo.; Charlie Houston, 23, of Steele, Mo.; and Tavarous Lockett, 16, of Caruthersville, Mo. All three were charged with at least one count of aggravated robbery. Lockett, who police say was charged as an adult, was also charged in Sunday's robbery.
Houston and Mayberry are brothers, and Lockett is their cousin, according to the news release.
