On December 6, 2009 the Dothan Police Department responded to a robbery in the parking lot of the Westgate Inn.
Upon arrival, police talked to the victim, an adult female, who said she pulled into the parking lot around 2:00 a.m. and exited her vehicle and started walking to her room. Before she made it to her door she stated she was approached by two black males who showed her a gun and demanded her purse.
The victim threw her purse on the ground and ran while the suspects took the purse and fled on foot. Investigating officers processed the area and located the purse along with evidence which was sent off for forensic testing.
Police have now received results from the evidence that identified the suspect as Antonio Rashad Johnson.
Johnson, now eighteen years of age, was a juvenile when the crime was committed but has been charged as an adult.
• Antonio Rashad Johnson, black male, 18 years of age, of Blackshear Street was arrested and charged with First Degree Robbery with a $250,000 bond.
