2 charged with shooting man, stealing clothes and phone
DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Two Ozark men are facing robbery charges after a robbery and firearm assault in Dothan Wednesday night.
Dothan Police say Jamari Antwan Carlisle, 24, and Javonte Devon mark Carson, 19, are both facing charges of robbery first degree and one count of assault first degree.
Police say the two approached the victim, who has not been identified, while he was sitting in his car in the 1000 block of East Lafayette Street. The suspects and victim may have been meeting to discuss purchasing the victim's rims, according to police.
The suspects allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and an altercation ensued. The victim was shot in the leg during the altercation. The suspects then took the victims clothes and cell phone along with $130 in cash and left the scene, police say.
The victim drove to the 1000 block of Summit Street and used another cell phone to call police. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injures. Police say the victim was able to describe the suspects and vehicle they were in.
Officers spotted the vehicle on Montgomery Highway and tried to pull the vehicle over, but the suspect kept going. They eventually stopped at the Houston – Dale county line on Mance Newton Road. Carlisle and Carson ran into a nearby field but were captured by police with the assistance of the Dothan Canine Team. One suspect who was captured by the canine was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Dothan police say the two are also linked to an incident that happened earlier Wednesday night in Ozark. According to Ozark's police chief, they are investigating a possible assault or harassment incident.
WSFA did speak with police about getting dash cam video of the chase. Police said they are still reviewing that video as part of the investigation.
