Police arrest two, seek third robbery suspect in Bon Air


The search continues for a third suspect in terrifying robbery. Police arrested 2 of three suspects so far: Carl Johnson and Faheem Jordan.

These men are accused of breaking into an apartment the 2000 block of Timbers Hill Road, in Chesterfield's Bon Air neighborhood.

They have a long list of charges against them - including aggravated sexual battery and weapons charges.

But the mother of one of the suspects is defending her son, saying police got the wrong man.

Police say there were three men who assaulted a man, inappropriately touched a woman, stole property and then stole a car.

The mother of one of the suspects, Faheem Jordan, says there's no evidence to prove her son did it and says her son is an innocent neighbor.

Vanessa Jordan said around the time of the crime her son, 21-year-old Faheem Jordan was inside his apartment with friends playing video games.

Shortly after midnight, she said, he and his friend, Carl Johnson, decided to take a quick trip to Wal-Mart and walked out to the parking lot.

"He said as soon as he got in the car, undercover police banging on the window: 'Get out the car. Get out the car'. He said, 'What's going on.' He said, 'Get out the car. You all was involved in a robbery'. He said, 'Who did we rob?' He said, 'What are you doing in the area?' He said, 'I live here.' He said, 'Where?' He said, 'I live in apartment T'. He said, 'Take me to the apartment'. He said, 'No'. He said 'You under arrest for robbery,'" Jordan explained.

Police are still looking for the third suspect and the victim's car. Jordan said the suspect with the stolen car, will set her son free.

"Whoever got robbed here, I want justice for them also. That's the main thing, to find out who did this. And there's a car missing, Faheem was inside his car so if a car was stolen from them where is the car, where is the TV, where is the jewelry?" Jordan asked.

For now, police are holding Jordan and Johnson behind bars and neighbors are left uneasy.

"It's very disturbing that something like this could happen here," said neighbor, James Hurt.

"It's usually quiet around here," said neighbor, Eric Dalton.

Police are still hoping the public can help in this case.
