PRINCE GEORGE — Three suspects have been arrested in a roadside robbery in which a vehicle rammed a scooter.

On Monday, June 23, three men in a dark-colored vehicle struck a scooter from behind while the victim was on his way home. The men then exited the car and assaulted the victim, one with a handgun, and stole the victims wallet.

According to Prince George Police, Hodari Taylor, 19, Wayne Jackson, Jr, 22, and Michael Walker, 26, have been charged following a vehicle pursuit in Colonial Heights.

The charges against the suspects include malicious wounding, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and robbery, and are being held at Riverside Regional Jail.

The three men have also been charged in a June 21 incident in the 2300 block of Wakefield Avenue on in Colonial Heights when a victim was shot at while driving away in her vehicle.

A fourth 16-year-old suspect was also arrested Friday for involvement in the incident, and is being charged with attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. The juvenile is currently in Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Center.

Jackson has also been charged with robbery and malicious wounding for an armed robbery, in which a man was shot in the abdomen, that occurred behind the Goodwill store on the Boulevard early June 24.

Colonial Heights detectives cooperated with Petersburg investigators to determine a suspect vehicle that had been involved in multiple area robberies, authorities said.

When the vehicle was later spotted in Colonial Heights on the afternoon of June 24, a car chase resulted in the apprehension of the three suspects following pursuit from a traffic stop, police said.

Petersburg Sheriff’s Office K-9 units, Petersburg police along with both air and ground units from the Chesterfield Police Department assisted in the arrests.
