— Goldsboro police on Thursday arrested a fourth person in a June 11 hold-up in which two Hampton Inn desk clerks were shot.

Blake Shane Taylor, 22, of 900 Evergreen Ave., Apt. C-2 in Goldsboro, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was being held in the Wayne County Jail under a $202,500 bond.

Quinton Edwin Moye, 18, of 38 Brooks Drive in Snow Hill, Alysha Jeannette Williams, 20, of 132 Vanderbilt Circle in Goldsboro, and Jonathan Glenn Sinclair, 16, of 408 Gulley St. in Goldsboro, were arrested last month on the same charges.

Three masked people demanded money from the desk clerk at the Hampton Inn, 905 N. Spence Ave., and shot him when he was slow to respond to their demands, police said. A second hotel employee was shot as the robbers ran from the lobby.

Employees Stephen King and Amanda Justice were treated at Wayne Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Williams was six months pregnant at the time of the robbery, police said.
