Two charged in bat, gun attack, robbery

GRAYSON -- Police have connected two Grayson men to a robbery in which they reportedly used a baseball bat and handgun to strong-arm three people out of electronics.

Gwinnett police arrested Mikell Wilson, 21, and Joseph Washington, 19, on three counts of armed robbery Wednesday.

Police say the April 16 robbery took place on Downingwood Lane in Grayson, about a mile from where both suspects are listed as living together.

Washington is accused of brandishing a baseball bat while ordering the three victims to lie on the ground and empty their pockets, as his accomplice pointed a handgun, police said.

The alleged take included an iPod Nano, Blackberry Curve cell phone, an iPod Touch and Xenon cell phone, according to arrest warrants.

Both suspects remain at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.
