— Raleigh police allege that Moori Rajee El, 25, used a black, long-barreled handgun to threaten the lives of three women during an August robbery.

Warrants state that El stole $2,615 from a Dollar General store on Rock Quarry Road on Aug. 21 and "terrorized" one of his victims.

El, of 3824 Chehaw Drive in Raleigh, was charged Friday with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and three counts of second-degree kidnapping.

He is currently being held in the Wake County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
