Man robbed while walking home from WalmartPublished 8:46pm Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Donte Carter, 25, was arrested Wednesday for robbery third degree. According to Sgt. Curtis Muhannad of the Selma Police Department, Carter used physical force to rob Salveyon Blevins, 24, Tuesday night in the 1900 block of Marie Foster Avenue. The robbery occurred between 7:30 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.
“There were no weapons involved, but heavy physical force was used,” Muhannad said. “According to Blevins he was walking home from Walmart when Carter walked up behind him and asked him for money to pay his probation officer.”
After Blevins refused, Muhannad said Carter threatened his life and took his wallet, making away with $20. Blevins broke his glasses and suffered minor injuries to his face from the altercation, Muhannad said.
Blevins called the police department at 8:10 p.m. and identified Carter as the offender. Muhannad said one of the department detectives then went to Carter’s residence in the 1500 block of Martin Luther King Street but was unable to find him.
“One of our detectives spoke with some of Carter’s family members and told them he was a suspect in a robbery,” Muhannad said.
Wednesday morning, a family member brought Carter in to the police department.
“From there we determined that there was probably enough cause to make an arrest based on the victim’s information and injuries,” Muhannad said.
Wednesday afternoon, Carter was processed at the police department. Muhannad said Carter will reside at the Dallas County Jail under a $15,000 bond.
