Two men from north Georgia are behind bars tonight after allegedly robbing two teens at gunpoint and threatening to kill them during a drug deal in north Forsyth.
Jamal Earl Davenport, 22, of Dawsonville and William Chase Grizzard, 19, of Gainesville were arrested on Monday and charged with robbery and two counts of aggravated assault with a gun, according to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office arrest reports.
An incident report filed by the sheriff’s office in early August states that on Aug. 3, Grizzard and Davenport allegedly met with two victims to sell them a half an ounce of marijuana for $130. During the deal, both suspects allegedly pulled out black handguns and forced a male suspect to hand over his wallet, keys and phone before fleeing the scene.
The report states that both suspects failed to report the crime for over a week for fear of Grizzard, who allegedly told them he would kill them if they reported the incident to authorities.
Arrest reports state that deputies arrested Grizzard after he was found hiding in the closet at a home in Gainesville and Davenport was arrested after a traffic stop on Jot Em Down Road.
Both suspects have been booked into the Forsyth County Jail and are being held under no bond.
