ROBBERY SUSPECT: Deshaun Rushing.
Police investigating multiple robberies of people using an ATM machine on Rodney Parham staked out the bank and made an arrest Friday night of a 16-year-old Hall High School student, Sgt. Cassandra Davis reports. Another suspect was identified and is being sought.

Police broke up an attempted robbery of a man near the teller machine and later arrested one suspect, Deshaun Rushing, at an apartment nearby on Old Forge Road.

The police summary summary follows:

On 09-11-2012 at approximately 2120 hours, officers received a call to an aggravated robbery at the Regions Bank ATM located at 10124 N. Rodney Parham Rd. The victim, Derek Merriman, stated that he was robbed by two black males, and one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. Mr. Merriman advised that they ordered him to put his pin number in the machine and they obtained an undisclosed amount of currency.

On 09-28-2012 at approximately 2207 hours, officers were called to the same Regions Bank to another robbery of an individual. Upon the officer's arrival, they made contact with Shariq Haroon who stated that he was robbed by two black males. Mr. Haroon advised that the suspect armed with the handgun approached him while he was at the ATM and ordered him to put his pin number in the machine. The suspects obtained an undisclosed amount of currency and fled north from the business.

On 09-28-2012, Detectives received a call from Resource Officers Mobley and Brown who advised that one of the suspects in the alert sent out by detectives appeared to be Deshaun Rushing. Officers Mobley and Brown stated that Mr. Rushing is a student at Hall High School.

On 10-12-2012 at approximately 2000 hours, robbery detectives were in concealed locations around Regions Bank when they observed Rushing and a second unknown black male walking around in the area. They appeared to be watching three people at the atm, however they did not make contact with them. At approximately 2115 hours, Detectives observed a single black male approach the area again in the parking lot of the closed El Chico's Restaurant located behind Regions Bank. The black male walked up to Enrique Salinas, who was walking through the parking lot, and displayed a handgun. Mr. Salinas stated that the suspect put the gun to his head and demanded his money. Detectives identified themselves and ordered the suspect to drop the gun. The suspect fled in a northern direction. The suspect was able to elude detectives at that time.

A short time later, detectives went to 1400 Old Forge #2201 and located Deshaun Rushing. Rushing was transported to the Major Crimes Division. Rushing was subsequently charged with one count of aggravated robbery, one count of theft of property, and was charged as an adult per DPA Tamera Deaver. He was transported to the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.

Detectives were able to identify a second suspect in the above listed cases and additional charges are expected after further investigation.
