— Raleigh police arrested two men and two teens this week in the beating and robbery last November of a man at an east Raleigh ATM.

Dondree Lee Dickens, 21, and Cornelius Isaiha Crumel, 18, and the teens, ages 14 and 15, each face a single count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. 

Surveillance video from the ATM, near the intersection of Trawick Road and New Bern Avenue, showed a 48-year-old man withdrawing cash and then being approached by three men.

The first punched him in the face and stole his wallet and the cash before walking away. Then two others kicked and threatened him with a wooden stick and took his watch.

Police said tips from the public were instrumental in leading them to the suspects.

    We live in East Raleigh ~ about 2 minutes, if that, from Tower. I've rarely use this ATM, but I'm always careful. Crime can happen anywhere. Middle, poor, upper. Doesn't matter where you live. I typically prefer the drive-thorough though.

    ok white folks,time to stop shopping in these areas and using services in these areas near new bern ave and mini city.Don't be a target.

    We are given the impression that the black crime rate is higher because of sensationalism in the media...I beg to differ. The media only sensationalizes when a black person is "wronged", only IF by a WHITE person. The media doesn't report the fact that more young black men are killed by other young black men in ONE day, than the police kill in a YEAR! This country and it's media is controlled by liberals and race-baiters.

    Good! Looks like this culture of "not snitching" is waning.

    Why no HATE CRIME charges? Put four whites on one Black Man and Holder would have his folks here in a heartbeat.

    Ha! I never understood the difference between a hate crime and a regular crime. Now it makes sense. Thanks!
