FBI Arrests Two More Suspects in Violent Takeover Robbery

WOODBURY, GA—Ricardo Grave de Peralta, acting special agent in charge (A/SAC) of the FBI Atlanta Field Office, announces the arrest of two more suspects in a violent takeover-style bank robbery that occurred on June 28, 2018.

The FBI would like to thank the news media and the public for their help in identifying D’Asis Sheffield, 20, of Greenville, Georgia. Sheffield, who was arrested this morning, was identified from a video that was released to the public through the media on July 27, 2018. Sheffield was one of three suspects seen inside the United Bank located at 33 Jones Mill Road, Woodbury, Georgia, during the robbery.

A fourth suspect, Dontavius Prather, 22, was also arrested this morning along with Sheffield. Prather is believed to be the driver of a getaway vehicle.

Two other suspects, Derrick R. Scott, 26, of Augusta, Georgia, and Antavious Bray, 29, of Greenville, Georgia, were taken into custody hours after the robbery.

The robbery occurred at approximately 12:25 p.m., on Wednesday, June 28, 2018. Three suspects, two armed with handguns and the third armed with an AR-15 rifle, entered the United Bank and forced employees to the ground at gunpoint and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

The public should be reminded that the above are merely allegations and that all persons are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
