Police Arrest One Suspect In Robbery

Authorities arrested one suspect and are searching for the other, both involved in a robbery.

Terri Annette Vaughn was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated robbery.

The 23-year-old's bond has been set at $300,000.

Officers were sent to the 2900 Block of 9th St. for a robbery call on Monday afternoon.

The victim said he was walking home after getting into a verbal argument with the suspects on the 500th Block of Kemp Blvd.  He fled on foot, but the suspects, Terri Annette and Dazun Dever chased him in a white vehicle.

They caught up with the victim, exited their vehicle, and Dever proceeded to punch the victim in the head.  The suspects fled the scene leaving the victim laying on the ground, bleeding from a laceration to the scalp.

He was transported to United Regional by ambulance.

Authorities followed up with an investigation and were able to identify the suspects and issued warrants.

Police located Terri Vaugnn at 7:00p.m. on Monday night at her home in the 1100 Block of Jackson Circle in Wichita Falls.

Vaughn allowed officers to search her residence.  They found Dever hiding in a closet and claimed he was not involved in a robbery.  Dever said that the victim swung at him first, but was unable to make contact.  Dever then explained that the victim fell to the ground and had a seizure.  Dever and Vaughn took his wallet and fled the scene thinking the witness that saw the whole thing, would call an ambulance.

Dever later told police that Vaughn had his wallet and that he was not involved.

Vaughn was questioned and during the interview, Vaughn initially said she hadn't taken the victim's wallet.  She then corrected herself and said she took it so no one else would.  She refused to admit to police that Dever was involved in the assault and robbery.

Police brought in the witness for questioning.

The witness explained that Dever was smashing the victims head on the concrete and took something from the victim's back pocket.

Vaughn was booked into Wichita County Jail early Thursday morning.

Police are still searching for Dever.

If you have any information, please contact Crime Stoppers at (940) 322-9888.
