Three individuals have been arrested following the assault and robbery of a 70-year-old couple who were stopped at a red light on Sunday evening.   

According to reports from the Greenville Police Department, the couple was driving north on Evans Street and had stopped at Greenville Boulevard intersection.

While they were stopped, a man later identified as Aaron Baker, allegedly got out of a car and jumped into the backseat of the couple’s vehicle as three others, including a driver, waited inside the car he exited, the report stated.

Once inside the couple’s car, Baker allegedly struck the elderly woman across the face, displayed a handgun and demanded her purse. Baker returned to the vehicle he exited and the driver fled the scene, according the the report.

Police said the couple was not seriously injured and they were able to provide a detailed description of the attacker and the vehicle he was riding in. 

A short time later, deputies with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office notified Greenville Police officers that the vehicle passed the Greenville Mall. A Greenville police officer located the vehicle at the intersection of Greenville Boulevard and 10th Street and the officer activated his lights and sirens.

The driver, Christopher Barrett, initially ignored the blue lights, but eventually came to a stop in the area of East 10th Street and Forest Hill Drive. Baker jumped out of the car and ran onto the Greenway behind a nearby apartment complex. He was apprehended.

Barrett and a woman identified as Ayunna Jackson, who police discovered had her 7-month-old baby with her, were arrested. 

The trio are currently housed in the Pitt County Detention Center. 

Baker, 17, is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of second degree kidnapping, felony conspiracy robbery with dangerous weapon, assault by pointing a gun, assault on a female, going armed to the terror of the public, and with resist/obstruct/delay. His bond is set at $1 million.   

Barrett,20, is charged with felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and failure to yield to emergency lights and siren. His bond is set at $100,000. 

Jackson,19, is charged with felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and child endangerment/abuse. Her bond is set at $50,000.
