Yesterday morning a Realtor was robbed at gun-point in a South Charlotte neighborhood near the intersection of Emerywood Dr. and Archdale Dr.
In a truly bizarre turn of events, the agent was actually waiting for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police at the home, so that he could file a different report about the home’s recent break-in. Suddenly, the armed robber tapped on his window while he was sitting in his car and demanded all his stuff, according to News Channel 9.
The robbery was announced through a social media neighborhood app and confirmed with the CMPD.
This new robbery now has many agents on an even greater alert, especially after the recent incident of a Realtor being slipped a date rape drug at a Charlotte area open house.
“Sometimes Realtors are showing a house and they’re by themselves so its very important they take all their security measure to stay safe,” commented CMPD Officer Johnathan Frisk with the Crime Prevention Division.
The National Association of Realtors recommended that realtors always keep their cell phone nearby, let someone know where they are, and to always be aware of their surroundings.
Police do not yet have any suspects for the robbery or the break-in at the home. If you have any additional information about this case, please call Charlotte CrimeStoppers at 704-334-1600.
