On Oct. 16, at approximately 4:14 a.m., a robbery was reported at Circle K at 765 Valley Road, Mocksville.

The clerk stated that three black males entered the store wearing ski masks on brandishing guns. One suspect was described as a black male wearing a grey shirt, red jogger type panst with white stripe on the side/ back, black ski mask; the second suspect was a black male wearing an orange ski mask, black sweatshirt with white stripes, black pants, and blue tennis shoes; and the third suspect was a black male wearing a red hoodie, black pants with white emblems on the front, flip flops, and black mask, reported Davie Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs.

The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash, cigars and cigarillos. One suspect struck the clerk on the back of their head causing a laceration. The clerk was transported by EMS to the hospital to be treated and released, Jacobs reported.

The suspects left in a late 2000s Toyota Sienna minivan. Davie sheriff’s detectives along with Winston-Salem Police Department, located the vehicle in Winston-Salem. It had been reported stolen during a carjacking in Winston-Salem approximately an hour before the robbery in Mocksville.

After the robbery in Mocksville, the vehicle was used in multiple car break-ins in Kernersville, Jacobs said. Kernersville Police Department located and pursued the vehicle but terminated the pursuit after it crossed into Guilford.

Winston Salem Police Department later located the vehicle abandoned on 24th Street in Winston-Salem. Davie investigators processed the store and vehicle. Detectives are continuing to investigate.
