Police to dismiss charges against suspect in armed robbery

GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY - Police said they will dismiss the charges against a man who was accused of an armed robbery in Greenville.

Jamar Clark, 22, was arrested for allegedly robbing a 48-year-old man while he was sitting on a bench near Eppes Park Monday afternoon. The alleged victim said Clark and another man hit him in the head with a gun, robbed him and ran away.

But on Wednesday, the alleged victim took back his statement that Clark was one of the attackers.

Clark was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon. But because the alleged victim recanted his statement and could not be reached, police said they will dismiss Clark's charges.

The case remains under investigation, police added. The second suspect has not been identified.
