AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Americus police are working to determine if three suspects in one robbery are responsible for another.

Malcolm Johnson says a man held him at gunpoint on sunset drive Friday night and demanded his wallet.

The robber then hit Johnson with the gun and ran off.

Police are looking at three people charged in a similar robbery outside a home on Lee Street two weeks ago.

"We have not tied them to anything else at this point in time however we are hopeful and our active investigation will continue," said Americus Police Major Herman Lamar.

Styles Dodson and two juveniles were arrested after a short chase Sunday morning on Church Street.

So far they're only charged with the Lee Street robbery.
