Police arrest man for CFCC parking deck robbery


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- One man was arrested after allegedly stealing a video camera from three men.

The incident happened yesterday afternoon when one adult male and two juvenile men were skateboarding and videotaping themselves at the Cape Fear Community College parking deck. A man drove up and started asking them questions about their camera.

He offered them money if they would do a trick, and while two of them were skateboarding for him, the robber grabbed the video camera from the third person. There was a struggle, and according to the victims, the man displayed a knife or razor and held it to the neck of the victim with the camera.

As the victim with the camera pulled away, he was cut on the side of the neck and hand causing minor injuries. Then the robber fled. Wilmington Police arrived in the area and apprehended the suspect near N. 4th and Campbell Streets.

The suspect Jairo Arnoldo Rebollo was identified by the victims as their attacker but their camera was never found.

Rebollo is in custody at the New Hanover County detention facility. He is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held on $200,000 bond.
