JC Gholston
At 7 p.m., a 41-year-old Dallas woman stepped onto an elevator at Founders Plaza that was already occupied by two men, one of whom police identified as 20-year-old JC Gholston.

When the elevator reached the second floor, Gholston stepped in front of the woman, pulled out a black CO2-powered pistol and pointed it at the woman's face. When she asked what he was doing, he yelled at her to shut up, then took her iPhone 4, American Express card, and a dollar bill.

Gholston was later arrested and charged with aggravated robbery. He's in jail on a $25,000 bond.

Nearly three hours later, at 9:51 p.m., 35-year-old man was walking in an alleyway in the 1200 block of Pacific Avenue when he was approached by an armed robber who demanded his iPhone 5. (Update at 9:26 p.m.: Police arrested 28-year-old Victor Nunez for this offense. The victim got his phone back.)

And at 3:30 a.m. in a Victory Park apartment at 2500 Houston Street, two acquaintances, a man and a woman, knocked on the door of a 34-year-old resident. When he opened it, they pistol-whipped him and forced him to the ground.

They held him there at gunpoint as they forced him to open a small floor safe, from which they took $12,000 cash, a $25,000 gold and diamond necklace. They also took his Blackberry and another cell phone.

Then, they forced him to accompany them to the elevator and down to the lobby, where they left him. According to a police report, the building has camera footage of the robbers.

They obviously knew about the safe and what was in it.

That's what I love about the internet...it's the last bastion for racist cowards.  They feel strongly enough to post here, but would never have the balls to spout any of their idiocy in the face of the people they're railing against.

I can't believe they published the mugshots.  THAT'S SO RACIST.   I can't believe the media is engaged in a massive ongoing coverup of all the white people in Dallas who go out mugging and home-invading on the weekends.  Seriously, when was the last time the media ran a mug shot of a white mugger? THAT'S SO RAAAAAAACIST....

These are the Dallas citizens that would feel safer w/o guns, according to Rev. Buchanan, pastor of First Presby Church of Dallas.

Hey, Dallas: Don't walk in alleyways at 9:51pm.  Don't open your door at 3:30am.  Don't enter an elevator if it's occupied by mean looking people.

Common sense you learn as a child growing up in Brooklyn.

If you're foolish enough to get into an elevator with someone who looks like JC, you should shoot him immediately.

@Vndallas Why should people be afraid to "spout any of their idiocy in the face of the people they're railing against?"

@shwhitley Get a real job, save and diversify and someday you too can have a floor safe with similar contents.

Don't forget the $25,000 gold and diamond necklaceand the floor safe... If we were to consult the Magic 8-Ball (note the irony), it would probably read "All signs point to 'Yes'"... Then again, would a drug dealer call the police about getting ripped off?

On your part, the hair and stoned look is a tipoff no matter the color.

But, yes, in the real world, his race may also be a factor, according to the Reverend Jesse Jackson and crime statistics.

I suspect under the circumstances you might have taken race into consideration, no matter what color you are - if not, you're an idiot.

@observist @ruddski So in addition to videotaping women without their consent you also advocate fucking them without their consent too..

No wonder you support gun control.

@ruddski @observist  No, your racism, violence and stupidity don't offend me.

But if anyone is foolish enough to get on an elevator with someone who looks like your daughter, they should rape her immediately.  

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Violence!  FUNNY!  Like+++++++!!!!!

@ruddski @observist Nooooo it's the economy. You see... if the economy was better someone like him would have a wonderful high paying job and he wouldn't need to turn to a life of crime. Poverty made him do it. And George Bush
