Stafford VA. Three suspects were apprehended on Thursday night by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office for robbing a man who was attempting to sell them a pair of shoes.

On November 21, 2019, at approximately 9:59 p.m., Deputy Martin responded to a reported robbery in the area of Colonial Forge High School located at 550 Courthouse Road. The victim told deputies he had agreed to meet three male subjects at the school to sell them a pair of shoes.

When the victim arrived and handed the shoes over, the subjects began assaulting him. They knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head. They also took the shoes off his feet and the watch from his wrist.

The victim observed the subjects flee the scene in a vehicle with both pairs of shoes and the watch. One of the occupants exited the vehicle onto Woodcutters Road.

Deputy Martin located the suspect vehicle traveling on Lightfoot Drive. He conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the two occupants of the vehicle. The driver was identified as a 17-year-old juvenile and the passenger as Georell Hall, 21, of Stafford.

The third suspect was located by Sgt. B.J. Reed walking near a residence. He was identified as John Gonzalez, 20, of Stafford.

Hall and Gonzalez were taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond on charges of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, assault by mob, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The juvenile was held at the Juvenile Detention Center and petitions were filed.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the community that there are two parking spots in front of the Ford T. Humphrey Public Safety Building located at 1225 Courthouse Road that have been designated as safe exchange zones. These provide a safe and well-lit place for the public to exchange goods or conduct child custody exchanges in a law enforcement protected environment.
