Three South Carolina black teenagers who went on a July crime spree that included armed robberies, kidnapping, and a near sexual assault that was foiled by one victim’s stunning escape, reportedly targeted their victims because of their race.
And no, you won’t be hearing about this on the mainstream news.
“This was a crime spree. They would not have stopped,” said Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott. “They made a statement that they did not like white people and they were only going to rob white people.”
17-year-old Raquan Green and two unnamed 15-year-olds were reportedly captured last week. One of the 15-year-olds injured an officer while resisting arrest.
“Between July 3 and July 26 there have been seven separate incidents of armed robberies, some to include carjacking and kidnapping along the Bluff /Shop Road Corridor,” Lott told WISTV. “Investigators discovered that the suspects began targeting delivery drivers by committing armed robberies. The crimes then escalated to carjacking and kidnapping victims.”
The late-night robberies included four food delivery drivers, one of whom was forced to withdraw money from an ATM to give to the perpetrators. Items stolen included cell phones, cash, and electronics.
Here is the timeline, according to WISTV.com:
7/3 – 11:30 p.m. Delivery driver from China Wing Basket robbed at gunpoint on the 100 block of Aster Circle
7/15- 7:50 p.m. Delivery driver from Teapot Chinese Restaurant was robbed at gunpoint at 1051 Southern, the Village at Columbia Apartments
7/17- 7:13 p.m. Delivery Driver was robbed and assaulted at 1612 Bentley Court
7/19 -11:40 p.m. Delivery Driver Kidnapped and Abducted at 1050 Southern Drive (Village at Columbia Apartments)
07/25- 1:30 a.m. the victim was kidnapped and abducted at 112 Silo Ct – Stadium Suites
07/25 -2:00 a.m. the victim was robbed, carjacked and kidnapped at Stadium Suites (Involved third suspect)
7/26 -1:15 a.m. the victim was robbed and kidnapped at 1050 Southern Drive, (Village at Columbia Apartments) (Involved the third suspect)
According to Sheriff, an African-American victim was released by the suspects when they found out she was not white.
Green remains jailed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center on $40,000 bond and an additional $35,000 for an extra weapons possession charge.
Jordan Dinsmore was the only victim to tell her story to press on Thursday:
Her mother also interviewed with News2:
According to Dinsmore, the group of three black males approached her as she was returning home from work on July 26. They pushed her to the ground, put a gun to her head, and threatened to kill her unless she drove them to an ATM and withdrew money to give to them. After she complied, one of the perpetrators told her she was going to his “auntie’s house” to be used for sex.
Fortunately, in a stunning piece of bravery brought on by the will to survive, Jordan was able to escape by jumping out of her moving car. She then ran to the interstate and flagged down help.
