ALBANY — Damious King, sought in last week’s armed robbery at an East Albany Long John Silvers restaurant, was one of two people with charges logged against him on Monday afternoon in connection to the incident.
King has been charged with party to a crime: aggravated assault; party to a crime: aggravated battery; party to a crime: possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime, and probation violation.
Officials with the Albany Police Department report that Ronnie Mathis was also arrested Monday in connection to the incident. He has been charged with obstruction of an officer and giving false statements in writing.
King turned himself in to the APD Monday morning. He had been under suspicion as being one of two assailants who shot a man in the arm Wednesday during a robbery attempt in the parking lot of the East Oglethorpe Boulevard establishment.
Wesley L. Anderson, 41, was also wanted in connection to the aggravated assault and robbery, police officials have said.
During the incident, Giorgi Kartvilish was shot in the arm when he resisted a robbery attempt, a police report stated. Police say two robbers fled the restaurant in an older model Chevrolet S-10 pickup, which was abandoned on the 100 block of Eugene Lane.
Kartvilish was discharged from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital on Friday.
In other developments, an APD spokeswoman said that detectives spent Monday putting up reward posters to assist with generating more tips regarding the Sandtrap Club & Lounge fatal shooting on Aug. 28 that killed DeAndre DeAngelo Williams.
