2 men arrested in connection to apartment robbery

NATCHEZ — Two men who reportedly robbed a man at gunpoint at Holiday Apartments last week were arrested Thursday.

Justin L. McGuire, 601 Old Washington Road Apt. 5-E, and Devonta D. Perry, 21, 14 Rembert St., both were charged with armed robbery Thursday in connection to the apartment robbery.

Natchez Police Detective Jerry Ford said the victim reported he was backing his vehicle out of a parking space at approximately midnight when two masked gunmen approached his vehicle and demanded money.

The men allegedly took two cell phones from the victim, as well as his wallet containing $800 in cash and credit and identification cards, Ford said.

Ford said the investigation into the robbery is ongoing, and more arrests could be forthcoming.
