Two caught, one wanted in Fayetteville armed robbery

Posted May 8, 2012

— Fayetteville police have arrested two men and are searching for a third wanted in connection with robbing and beating two men last weekend.

Police said that four men assaulted a man in the 400 block of Warmspring Drive and robbed him at gunpoint around 1 p.m. When the victim's friends came to help him, the men beat and robbed him, too. They fled in a green Camaro.

Following up on a tip, police said, officers found the Camaro in the parking of the Dog Pound Tattoo parlor. Officers arrested two men, while a third managed to run away.

Brandon Victor Hayes, 21, of the 3100 block of Ron Street, is wanted on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and resisting a public officer.

Hayes is described as black, 6 feet tall, weighing 165 pounds. He has the name "Brandon" tattooed on his forearm.

Oshay Delon Jackson, 18, of the 6200 block of Whitehall Drive, and Andrew Earnest Seidel, 22, of the 100 block of Lowery Road in Shannon, were charged with two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and one county of felony conspiracy.

They were both placed in the Cumberland County jail under separate $80,000 secured bonds.

Seidel had been released from jail in March after serving 13 months for felony break-in and weapons convictions, according to state Division of Adult Correction records. He has eight convictions dating to 2005, including conspiracy to commit armed robbery and assault on a school official.

Hayes was convicted of 10 burglary, break-in and larceny charges in 2010, records show. He served about eight months in jail.

    Repeat offenders, bail to low, should be no bail lock them up "FOR GOOD." Get the trash off the streets.

    I'm guessing that they won't "rehabilitated". I'll also go out on a limb and guess that their next visit won't do much to crub their crimminal ways either.

    These guys should be beaten so that they know how it feels to be beaten and thrown in jail. I hope the victim recovers soon. Too bad the victim wasn't armed, that way he could have defended himself. This is why people need to start carrying concealed.

    Send them to prison for a 50 years and maybe those left behind will learn from it.

    Reading these stories shows how weak our prosecutorial system has become. The DAs allow to many pleas and reduced time in order to push cases along. Seeing that half their cases are previous offenders, if they took the time and pushed stiffer jail time they could cut their work in half. Especially when there is a clear pattern of criminal activity.

    sorry but to give them more then probation would mean we are picking on them because of their skin color. We should bring back the chian gang and let them work for their food not just sit their and watch tv and play video games and collect their unemployment

    Let them work on a chain gang for about twenty years in the heat and see if that does not change their attitude.

    hard labor out in the sun -MikeH -----> You're right. There has to be some sort of deterrent. Its like dealing with children, if there are no serious consequences, what's to keep them from doing it? And prison time is not a serious consequence...not with more ammeneties than most can afford.
