On the night of Thursday April 20th at 7:03, an APD officer was at an apartment complex in the 4500 block of Maverick Street.
The officer was approached by two male victims who stated that another male had just pulled a gun on them. The victims said that they were sitting in a vehicle waiting on a friend to come out when Clayton Andrew Hamilton got into the truck and pulled a handgun on them.
The suspect told the victims to give him everything that they had. The victims told the suspect that they had nothing to give him. The suspect then racked the slide on the gun and pointed it at them. The victims told the suspect again that they had nothing to give him and the suspect got out of the truck and left.
Through their investigation the officers were able to locate an apartment that the suspect may have gone into. Amarillo Police say 18-year-old Clayton Andrew Hamilton matched the description of the robbery suspect. 17-year-old Brayden Scott Oglesby and three other people were inside of the apartment.
Oglesby was found to have a local municipal warrant and placed under arrest. Hamilton was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana and he was placed under arrest.
Oglesby and Hamilton were booked into the Randall County Jail on their charges.
Detectives were able to link Hamilton to the attempted robbery of the two victims and to the robbery of the pizza delivery man on April 19th at the same location.
The other similar robberies in the area are still being investigated.
