CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A man accused of assaulting and robbing a disabled man, robbing an Exxon station, and leading police on a high-speed pursuit will spend the next 15 years behind bars.

Spencer Harris, 31, was sentenced to 188 months in prison.

Police say on November 13, 2014, Harris and an accomplice entered the home of a man with disabilities, assaulted the victim, then robbed him of $2,000, prescription medicines and an antique firearm. As the suspects were leaving, a second victim arrived at the home. Police say the suspects also robbed the second victim of his money and car keys, then fled in the victim's vehicle.

On November 23, police say Harris and his accomplice then robbed the Exxon on Woods Edge Road using an antique firearm. Harris grabbed $300 from the store, and the two suspects fled the scene, leading police on a high-speed pursuit.

Police arrested the suspects several weeks later.

Harris pleaded guilty to two counts of interference with commerce by robbery on July 2, 2015 and was ordered to pay $2,600 in restitution to the victims of the crimes.
