Two Spotsylvania County men have been arrested in connection with a strong-arm robbery Saturday outside a Fredericksburg fast-food restaurant, police said.
City police spokeswoman Sarah Kirkpatrick said a man’s wallet and expensive pair of tennis shoes were stolen after he was confronted by men inside the McDonald’s in Central Park.
Naheem Darquaun Fox and Zachary Gray Mickens, both 27, are charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Both are being held in the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
Kirkpatrick said the victim told police that he entered the restaurant about 6:30 p.m. and got in line. He recognized one of the men in front of him, and one of them made an “aggressive” comment to him.
The victim left the line at that point, Kirkpatrick said, and a group of men followed him out. They demanded the shoes he was wearing and his wallet, and the victim complied.
The suspects left in an SUV that the victim described for police. A deputy spotted the vehicle later that night in Spotsylvania and took Mickens into custody.
Fox was arrested by city police Sunday at a restaurant on State Route 3 in the city, Kirkpatrick said. It was not clear Monday whether the wallet or the shoes had been recovered.
Fox and Mickens are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Fredericksburg General District Court.
