The Oak Ridge Police Department arrested three people on Monday, April 9, in connection with an alleged robbery at an Oak Ridge residence, authorities said.
Around 5 p.m., Joshua Young, 37, of Oak Ridge, and Benjamin Davis, 27, of Powell, allegedly forced their way into the home of the victim on East Tennessee Avenue, the ORPD said. The victim said that a friend had sold a game console to Davis and that Davis later returned with Young. The victim told officers that Davis claimed the console he purchased was broken and that the victim needed to return his money or he was taking something of equal value, the ORPD said.
The victim said Young and Davis forced him to sit on the couch while they took a tablet computer and an undetermined amount of cash before leaving his residence, officers said. The victim stated that he observed Young and Davis get into a vehicle driven by a woman who was later identified as Hannah Phillips, 27, of Oliver Springs, the ORPD said.
Officers found Phillips, Young, and Davis at the nearby Staples on Main Street West, where they were attempting to return the tablet taken during the robbery, the ORPD said. Phillips was arrested on several outstanding warrants out of Anderson County as well as an additional charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Davis was arrested on several outstanding warrants and was additionally charged with robbery. Young was also charged with robbery, the ORPD said.
All three suspects were taken to the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton. The investigation is ongoing, the ORPD said, and no other information will be released at this time.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
