Second juvenile charged as adult in October armed robbery


A second juvenile has been charged as an adult in an armed robbery case from October, 2021. Darray Kernard Clayton, 17, has been charged with attempt to commit robbery with a firearm and burglary with assault or battery while armed with a dangerous weapon. Rushunn L. Davis, 20, was previously arrested on November 2 for the same incident, and Tydarious Malik Sheppard, 17, was previously charged as an adult in the case.

The incident took place on October 20 at the Circle K at 1515 N. Main Street. According to Davis’ arrest report, the victim had gone inside the Circle K store when he, Sheppard, and a third suspect (now identified as Clayton) arrived in their car and parked by the gas pumps. Sheppard walked in the store and handed the clerk some money, and when he left the store, he got into the victim’s car and stole a backpack containing several school books and $200 in cash. Davis and Sheppard then got into the victim’s car. After they got out, the victim came out of the store and saw all three of the suspects around his car. All three suspects approached him and began attacking him. The victim said one of the suspects pulled a handgun from his waistband. He was struck several times in the face and head but was able to run away from his attackers. Davis chased after him, demanding that the victim empty his pockets while showing the victim a handgun. The victim raised his hands in fear, and all three suspects got back into their vehicle and drove away. The entire incident was captured on video surveillance.

Clayton is being held on $400,000 bail.

  • These losers should have the book thrown at them as they are proven to be dangerous and this will only escalate. Looks like the taxpayers will be supporting them most likely for the rest of their lives. I hope some bleeding heart Judge doesn’t let them off with a slap on the wrist.

  • Until our Government stops incentivizing having more babies then we as a country are in for a long haul of crime. These kids have no parental leadership. They weren’t born this way. The only option is to also charge the ones who benefited by bringing them into this world and then threw them away.

  • 10, 20, life. Make wearing face masks illegal so we
    Can identify criminals in a criminal line-up.
