A St. Louis teen is the third suspect to be charged in a November 19, 2016 armed robbery and assault at the Wentzville Walmart.
According to court documents, three men with guns (two have been identified as Terrence Mayfield and Reshod Bailey) approached a man who was loading groceries into his Chevy Tahoe in the Wentzville Walmart parking lot and pointed guns at the victim’s head. The victim gave them his wallet and iPhone. Mayfield pulled the man’s wife out of the front seat and struck her in the head with a handgun.
A fourth suspect, Rico Bailey, drove the suspects to the Walmart in a borrowed Pontiac and provided them with the guns, police said. Rico Bailey stayed in the Pontiac, where he watched the robbery and then exited when the suspects left the parking lot in the Tahoe at a high rate of speed.
Police followed the Tahoe into St. Louis county, where it hit spike strips, and then lost a tire on Interstate 270 near Page Avenue. The SUV hit the median wall, Mayfield sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and the suspects were apprehended.
After the suspects were taken into custody, two were charged.
Terrence E. Mayfield, 22, of the 5700 block of Thekla in St. Louis, was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, one count of second degree assault, one count of armed criminal action, one count of stealing a motor vehicle, and one count of resisting arrest. All are felonies. Bond was set at $100,000, cash only, 10 percent not authorized. A disposition hearing is set for March 29.
