— A former Knightdale Domino's Pizza delivery driver won't have to repay the money stolen from him when he was attacked and robbed on the job Wednesday night.

When he returned to the store, he was told he would have to pay back the $61 that he lost in the robbery – a company policy.

Store owner Pat O'Leary said late Friday afternoon that in light of recent arrests in the case, Johnson will not have to repay the store.

Raleigh police have arrested Shaequan Johnson, 16, Lyndon Ore, 16, and Joshua Bishop, 18, all of Raleigh, and are looking for two other suspects in the case.

They are charged with one felony count each of strong-arm robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery, a Raleigh police spokeswoman said. They were in the Wake County jail Friday under a $25,000 bonds.

O'Leary said the store will go after the suspects for restitution, instead.

He added that the policy is in place to help prevent drivers from becoming robbery targets.

    The lesson here is for an owner to believe his employee first instead of jumping to conclusions and making brash, unsubstantiated statements that get people riled up enough to boycot his business.
