Suspect Facing Charge In Connection To Robbery Of Denver, N.C. Convenience Store

18-year-old Abdel Karim Lagueb of Denver, N.C. was arrested Tuesday (December 28) on charges filed in Mecklenburg County. He’s also a suspect in the robbery at a Lincoln County convenience store. Lagueb faces a count of common law robbery in that case.

Deputies were dispatched to the Seven-Eleven Store on Atwater Lane in Denver at approximately 3:00 a.m. Tuesday in reference to an armed robbery. The clerks on duty told officers a man entered the store wearing all black clothing and brandishing a gun.

The white male demanded money from the cash register and instructed the clerk to put it in a grocery bag. The man left the store, ran across a parking lot, and fled in a vehicle described as a silver passenger car.

At approximately 6:30 a.m. Tuesday Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department officers requested assistance in serving three outstanding warrants on a suspect from Lincoln County. Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies and CMPD officers went to the Kenyon Drive, Denver, residence where the suspect was staying.

Officers arrested Abdel Karim Lagueb on three outstanding warrants for robbery with a dangerous weapon at convenience stores in Charlotte. He was placed in the Mecklenburg County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond. During the CMPD interview with Lagueb, he reportedly confessed to the robbery at the Seven-Eleven in Denver. Lagueb will be charged with common law robbery in the Lincoln County incident.
