Three arrested in Americus attempted robbery

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Americus police charged three people with trying to rob a man outside a home Sunday night.

Juqrion Mathis, Kentrell Deriso and Andredus Cromity were arrested Tuesday in connection with an attempted strong arm robbery outside the victim's apartment at 1101 MLK Blvd in Americus.

Sunday night, the suspects allegedly approached the victim, struggled with him, then ran away without getting anything.

"The officers with the investigative division gathered information from witnesses, gathered information from citizens, gathered information from victims and they began to put the puzzle together and some facial recognition was made," said Major Herman Lamar with the Americus Police Department.

Police are investigating whether one of the suspects knew the victim.
