Marquez Alston, 22, was arrested for robbing two men while they were fixing their cars at the Woodbridge apartment complex in Charlotte, NC.
Marquez was already on electronic monitor probation, so the fast cash was a bad move for him.
Today at 4:00 p.m., a robbery was reported on Yateswood Drive. The victim advised he was robbed by two armed males while he was working on his vehicle. The suspects forced the victim to go inside of his residence and then demanded property from everyone inside.
Kids were in the residence and they were extremely traumatized.
